    thank you Elliot and atamjeet!

    finished the base part of driving track wheel
    you must be very careful with gluing part 56f to 55o. it must be on the same line, so later the wheel itself will seat exactly

    sorry for the bluish color - night shoot

    bugs:
    part 56i - only 6 in count instead of 12 - printed the rest 6 from a scan
    part 56c a little big in diameter - fixed it, but had minor problems latter with adjusting parts 56f

    drive track wheels are finished
    the assembling was not fun, because of a lot of mismatching
    another thing: i glued the inner ring with pads not right and the instructions didn't get any clue. it supposed to be glued more inside the base part, but eventually it turned right, because my mistake put the wheel in same line as others and tracks laid on it perfectly
    another surprise from the Famo
    also the rollers must be placed a little bit left from the middle of pad and not on the left edge of the pad as it shows in schemes

    bugs:
    nothing special, but as i mentioned, a lot must be fixed to fit properly, because of mismatching

    glued pneumatic cylinder and filter
    and assembled all the pneumatics on board
    this one in charge of pneumatic brakes to both drive track wheels and one tube goes to the back to output the air pressure to trailer, if attached
    pneumatics connect from compressor on engine to cylinder and 3 compressed air reservoirs. from the cylinder tubes go to the brakes and to the back
    even if this was very difficult to assemble, its the only stage when the mounting is possible
    i felt like a jeweler for few days

    bugs:
    none

    thanks barry
    i assembled mudguards. it was tricky.
    also glued middle step guarad, that i will put later, when rear mud guard will be in place.
    i was very careful with mudguards and compared a lot the placement and other parts. the mudguards must be glued to the floor from rear to front at the curve of the floor
    in this case the buldge is not to big and even if i still was in need to cut the side wall it will be possible to glue this two parts together, without cutting the mudguard.
    there is a picture that compares modified side wall on right and not modified on left


    bugs:
    parts 61l, 61m must be in mirror, but they don't. also the arc strip is too small for the arc in the side wall 61e (a dropped the arc strip and glued only the step)

    Hello to all
    assembled radiator grill. and here also pops up design mistake, from nowhere!
    the strip that surrounds the grill is too small, and the funny thing on each side its different, if you take the center as radiator cup (first 2 pictures)
    it is computer design isn't it? i rest my case...

    also assembled the radiator itself. there was also mistake in strip length, but small.
    the details will be glued on the frame later. i still want to assemble some other parts and take measurements here and there

    bugs:
    parts 62d, 62e, 62f are too small - added a piece from reserve
    part 63c is small on the endings - they will be closed by the supportings

    Hello
    rear wall assembled
    and i finally decided to put the parts on the model
    it was hard one, but i managed to connect the side walls with mudguards
    i was afraid that i will pass the upper line of the wall when i adjusted the curve to mudguard, but eventually it turned ok
    also connected tubes from radiator to engine
    the other tube, that goes from air filter to carburetor will be placed later, because i afraid it will prevent me to glue with comfort fuel system on rear wall

    bugs:
    detail 65h is short for few mm - i parted it in the middle. after i glue the engine cover above, it will not be seen

    thanks guys!

    I've assembled engine side-covers and hood
    the hood will be glued later, after i accomplish all the works in engine compartment

    bugs:
    part 65r - missing, ignored the part
    part 66j - hinges to small, i glued the doors in place so no problems
    part 66a, 66b - small in width for about 2 mm, will deal with it later, probably paint the white
    the design of hood doors mechanism is wrong. there is no way to close the doors completely, i glued the doors in opened state
