I ordered mine from Amazon, arrived within 2 days, currently assembling it. It really is a brilliant bit of engineering.

OK everyone..day 1.
3 hours building time.
Worked through the first 12 pages of the 47 page instruction book and used up about 10% of the close to 500 parts....

This is what it looks like....



The T Bar that is at the top is the gear lever: this allows selection of "forward", "Neutral" and "Reverse"

The little "Rocket" thing to the right is a tool provided to ensure things are correctly measured and spindles cut to the correct depth.

This "kit" is engineered to tolerances that MMC probably couldn't measure, some of the "push in" parts need quite a bit of force and once in they are not coming out!

Great care is needed checking fit and making sure the very fine nibs that hold each piece to the fret are removed. Also sand where indicated and apply bees wax (supplied) where shown.

It is crucial to follow the instructions step by step and make sure parts are the correct way round. They are clear and for each stage there is an image of the frets with the parts needed highlighted.

The hardest part is tying elastic bands to the correct length, these provide the "spring" for the transmission controls!

More tomorrow!!

Well, this afternoon...I can't stop, they are addictive!

Now recognisably Morgan, the rear section houses the motor and gearbox, the box and pedal box work, not sure yet how well.



Underneath the propshaft drives the V8, which has moving pistons...!.
Back axle in place.



Next stage is to build the engine, with 8 moving pistons.
