VERY nicely done, Rob.  I know how difficult white metal can be to work with, and in this scale!  Nice detail!

Wonderful work, Rob. The steering wheel and the windshield are great.

Nice build, though that slanted engine will never not look weird!

Any advice for someone with the kit near the top of their stash?

It was a very fiddly build. The rear suspension/transaxle assembly is really challenging. Test fit, test fit, test fit. Each wheel has six layers of photo-etched spokes (2 of which have to be formed into cone shapes), and four turned aluminum rims and hubs. I initially viewed them with much trepidation, but after building the rest of the model, they were a piece of cake.
