    Brexit

    Mine is still in the hands of the Belgian customs, arrived 18/01 !!!!! And some minuts ago i pay for pack n° 5.
  3. Has anyone found that the GT500 doors appear both 'floppy' on their hinges and loose in the body frame? I appreciate that the hinges must provide some vertical movement to enable a better fit the aperture, but would appreciate any suggestions on how to keep them flush with the body rather than partially open whilst on display?

    i just received pack 4 with a little delay, a little hole in the pack but no extra costs, next week i receive pack 1 from the bismarck, so lets wait if i have to pay or not. i live in the netherlands
  5. Ich kann es kaum erwarten, die erste Lieferung zu erhalten. Beste Grüße aus Deutschland

  7. Thats excellent news! Glad my suggestions helped. I agree this shouldn't have to be done but at least it was a relatively simple fix and saves you lots of frustration and waiting to finish.
  8. Many thanks for your suggestions. Applied Silvo and gently buffed it off a number of times until the Mark's became almost imperceptible. Great tip, thanks again!
  9. Stage 31 gives us the right rear wheel hub and brake. The assembly is the same as the previous one. The completed pack looks like this!
  10. Stage 29 gives us some of the rear suspension. Firstly, put the prop shaft and if in place. They are loose at this stage, and the prop shaft falls out easily! Don't worry about it, it goes back easily later. Now fit the upper wishbones to their bracket. Be careful to get these parts the right way round. Screw the upper wishbone holder to the chassis. The prop shaft has fallen out, but don't worry. Fit the left hub upright to the upper wishbone with a pin. Still no need to worry about the prop shaft...... Stage 30 gives us the lower left wishbone and shock.
  11. Stage 27 gives us the differential housing and drive shafts. Firstly, screw the inner drive shaft connectors to the diff housing. They are both the same, so it doesn't matter which way round they go. Now fit the drive shafts. These are fitted with a pin which pushes through fairly easily. It does matter which way round these go. Left and right are different, and the shafts must be fitted so they point slightly backwards. Now fit the left rear hub to the drive shaft with another pin. This completes this stage. Stage 28 gives us the top & rear diff housings a

  13. Both my front and rear screen have a few fine marks and blemishes that you can see if you hold it up to the light, they wasn't noticeable once fitted to my model so I just went with it. I have also read a lot of people having similar issues with the de agostini mustang build amd a presume most of the parts here are from the same factory? You could try polishing it with a fine compound such a jewelers rouge or silver polish or something and see if it improves at all? I totally agree that these marks are caused before the part is packed in the plant as they are securely packaged in sea
  14. damn that sucks, hope you get it soon

    That sounds like very good news, mine is still with the customs. Like you said luck is the main factor, if your goods are in the hands of the Belgian customs. Enjoy your build.
  17. Stage 26 give us the rear left wheel hub and brake. The assembly is virtually the same as the front hub/brake, but we don't add the wheel yet.
  18. Stage 25 gives us the floor panels Screw the first side in place. I taped the battery lead down to avoid it getting tangled. Add the second side. Now the engine is screwed in place. It's only held by two screws onto bell housing, but they hold it firmly. This completes this stage, and she is looking good!!
  19. I've got pack 4 now. Stage 24 gives us the front right wheel hub & brake. First, push the chrome cap into the spinner. Now put the brake disc on the hub. Add the caliper. Add the wheel. Turn it over, screw the wheel on, then add the spinner. This completes this stage.

    i believe that they did address this issue some place in a letter / email or on the website in another post about they are not going to put any added money into the packs as far as that went and i would assume they would address before changing anything as far as money is concerned
  21. Hi, Has anyone else had issues with marks on the front windshield? Had two now, both badly marked with a third promised direct from the plant (suggesting a quick audit of current stock proved fruitless). Suspect a modicum of chain-yanking from CS as presumably 'plant' is most likely overseas resulting in long and ultimately disappointing wait to complete my first Agora build.
  22. I just received mine today, one day later than the before Brexit delivery.

    Surprise, surprise I did receive my Pack 4 today. No extra costs and just a slight delay compared with before the brexit. Think luck is a factor to be taken into account as of now. But more communication would indeed be welcomed, even just a slight little message there will be a delay for x or y reason is enough for me to adapt my expectations. I don't ask and expect miracles in current situations.

    I think that i will finish this model, but seriously think it over not to subscribe on an other model of Agora. They did'n make any effort to give some reaction on my question about what is going to happen after the brexit , no communication at all on this forum. If i make a little sum, i pay monthly 132 euro multiply by 12 months give 1584 euros, with taxes and etc. maybe 20 to 25% surplus, than you pay more or less 2000 euros, or more for this model. The question you must ask yourself is, the model that worth ????? And another inconvenience fact is tha
  25. Stage 27, differential housing: Starting off, I use screws to join the drive shaft connectors to the housing: Next, using pliers, I connect the drive shaft left and right on to the connectors, by pressing in a pin for each (see how the drive shafts are sloping down which is important to get correct): And finally, with one more pin, I secure the drive shaft on to the brake assembly from the previous stage: Stage complete
  26. Stage 26, left rear wheel brake: Firstly, I press the hub cap on to the spinner and put it to the side for now: Next, I put the wheel hub into the brake disc, then screw on the brake caliper: Stage complete
  27. Like it is in Germany. If the custom vampires got it, it will take at least 3 more weeks. Luckily the last two terminator packs arrived quickly.
