Construction: Parts Identification


Since my kit didn't come with instructions, I had to first identify what each of the parts on the sprues were. The car body and the four sprues were in like-new condition, so this was purely an unbuilt kit. I took photos of each of the sprues and labeled the parts I could identify, just in case someone needs this information. Pieter Roos sent me a copy of the kit's instructions when I was about halfway through the construction, so I was able to identify the parts I was still scratching my head about. The ones on the body are relatively easy to identify, but the majority of the parts are for the underbody, for which there typically are no prototype photos.
