Working with my hands - Mercedes Benz CLK-GTR

So, the lady got me a couple of model cars for Valentine's, and I decided that I would set about the task of putting one of them together this morning at work...

Enter, Mercedes Benz CLK-GTR:


Step one, open the box and realize just how few pieces the kit consists of:


Step two, hang doors, snap in windshield and roof scoop, exterior almost done:


Next, install front grille and head/city lights:


Place steering wheel into dash, then dash into interior, then interior onto frame:


Body onto frame, twist 3 screws:


Choose silver wheels to mount instead of gold because the gold looked silly on the silver car (I MIGHT use them for the Chrysler ME 4-12 she got me though, it's black)
Finito:






Total time - about an hour, all while actually working... I probably could have knocked it out in 15-20 minutes uninterrupted.
I like it a lot, I am already having thoughts of copping a few more in the near future.
