Little details noted

So Little Changes To Be Made.

Right then, the wheel hubs.
Something I didn't originally notice from my reference pile is that sometimes,
there's a marking on the six spoke type of wheel.
Here's a pic of the real deal.

The raised 'GT' on one and the '40' on another.
I wanted that on this so easiest way is a decal printed on clear film so that was done.

Other assembled front wheel and the rubber tyre got a rub down around the tread with wet and dry grit paper, used wet.

Front sub frame assembled, wheels and shocks attached.

Sub frame and radiator/oil cooler installed.
Radiator was just given a black wash and silver drybrush.
The oil cooler was just a blank box so some mesh got used to make it look a bit better.

Spare tyre done and in place.

Transmission parts done out with wash and assembled.
The bloody great screw holes got patched with some quick cure epoxy putty and paint.

Rear wheels done and assembled with suspension to the transmission case.

Engine cylinder block assembled and mated to the transmission.

Got shot of the carb cover plate and test printed a mesh cover.
Found this acceptable and did the same for all of the carb's.

That'll do nicely!
On to the next page then!
