hmmmm

this model has a few issues... the line drawing assembly instructions don't reall cover all the parts. the frame cross pieces, for example, are indicated as part of the frame...but they have cut outs and the drawings don't say which side the cut out should be placed on, or if it should be placed up or down...so you have to look at all the drawings of all the sub assemblies and see if, by chance, the frame piece you're working on is in one of those drawings...and maybe it will tell you what its orientation should be

also, some pieces have a top and a bottom part...but instead of being printed as part of one piece you fold and glue and then gut out, they are 2 separate pieces you have to try to align as you glue them

all and all its still a good model, maybe it's a little old

added rivits

got the sides assembled to the front bumpber and added the rivits on the outside of the frame
rivits are little balls of baked clay, cut in half...not really that uniform...but they make a good "bump"
i also sanded down the square edges of the frame, as those frames were pressed and the corners were a tight radius and not a right angle bend
then a coat of olive drab to see how things are coming together
