Independent suspension is clever. Should be a dynamite model when complete. Still following ....

The suspension mechanism is pretty much complete, I just need to figure out a clever way to attach the springs to the arms, and then I can move over to the steering mechanism.

I'm a bit nervous about my "suspension system" made out of toothpicks, cardboard and cheap super glue. I don't think this was ever attempted by someone previously

Looks like a pretty complex assembly in miniature.

The suspension is almost definitivated, I just need to figure out a nice way to attach it to the body. In the meanwhile, I've been working on what's supposed to be the radiator(that paper bit is now removed) and the radiator support.(lol)
Then I will move on to the steering mechanism and electronics.
