Problem 1 - The steering column is already glued - mistake !
It must still go into the frame.
We will get to it when the frame is done and the assembling starts

Hi Henry - nice to see that you have posted this!

It looking good and nice to see that you are modelling in colour now.

Don't worry about the mistakes - its only paper and you have picked them up!

I have just sent you a PM re the carburettor question you had. see if this makes sense - if not PM me again and I will call you maybe.

Thanks Kevin.
The part of the ferrying that I cut out, I reprint it - fold it in B/W and just glued the color part over it

Engine and frame assembling

The rear arm is assembled too low - I've realized that when I wanted to fit the rear wheel
The rear wheel was too close to the rear fender.

Carburetor attached to the engine
About this photo
This part on the side of carburetor was cut off because I could not get the rear suspension in - I re-glued the parts when the rear suspension was fitted

Because the steering is already glued together I decide to cut open
the part on the frame where the steering must go in.
I re-close the open part of the frame after the steering was in position
