    My dears, now I'm joing the set 6+6B to the body. I'll start at the center of the set to obtain a better reference.

    But, in back of body I saw a litlle problem: the laterals of part #3-B will be between the body and the tab of set.

    To resolve this situation, I cut of a measured space of glued part #3-B with a knife.

    Now, in the curve, I glued each litlle tab one by one to garantee the correct ajustment.

    My dears,

    Here I'm with some progress gluing a several number of tabs! . . . (but, pay attention to decide where start, looking at the threads #52, 67, 79, 80)

    Now, I remember my post #41, when I start gluing the set to the body at the center, more specifically where are indicated by the blue arrows numbered as #1. But, at the final of the front of body, I noted at the right side a little difference, a tiny empity space, maybe accurred by a lack of attention on my part . . . (indicated by the right orange arrow numbered as #2). Fortunately, the left side is ok! I hope I can fix this error with the progress of process.

    Thank you for following!

    We call that "accrued intolerance". That piece may be forced to curve by making that side align. These subtle treatments are how UHU gets the overall shapes, bends, and curves on his models. I think by the time you are done, it will disappear. There is a "cap piece" on this scooter. I have attached some pictures so you can see it. This supposed to be a 1953 Faro Basso, for reference. I don't know how detailed UHU got, but the link below will show you where I got the "cropped" pics from. This "cap" on the body work will hide the gap. Around 10 years ago I welded some sections of one of these together that had rusted out. What a pain in the butt! There isn't a flat surface on this thing, and a sand bag a big plastic hammer was necessary go get the shape. If you look closely, you will see the cap. I have not built this model, and do not know how detailed UHU got, but you could take it to the next level if it isn't there. ;)

    My dears, sorry for post just now, but I had some problem gluing the left lateral at the set. Some tabs moved a little when I thought the glue was dry. At the first photo the wrong place are indicated. At the second photo, I'm afraid about some difficult here, at the doble lines at top. Sorry . . .

    It will be very educational to see you fix this, as I have no doubt you will. :)
