    What was the difference between the hard and easy versions? The wheels? If that's what it was, I'd do the "hard" version because wheel detail on trucks makes a big difference in model appearance. The rear wheels have a deep dish while the fronts are opposite. In fact, on the actual trucks, usually the front wheel is the same as the rears, just mounted flipped around.

    the chassis for one, a simple box, or completely boxed out, cross members and main frame rails.
    Interior, and some other parts

    Nice model - and cool car. Back in the old days I built a couple versions of the Tamiya plastic kit of that car - including using the electric motor on one so it could drive and also adapting another body kit onto a slot car (it was slow but looked cool).
