This kit requires very close attention to how the frame, rear axle, and engine/transmission fit together. Assemble the frame or engine first and glue the front shocks to the frame. Assemble the front axle assembly and add the shock plate. Check the fit of the front axle & frame before the glue cures. A shim may be needed for the fit of the transmission to the rear motor mount. Fitting of the rear axle to the frame & drive shaft is critical for alignment. Attach rear radius rods and ensure that glue has not cured so that you can "adjust" the fit so that the drive shaft aligns with the rear end. Front motor mounts are too short and there's not enough space for the oil filter. After all this you can paint the frame & axle assemblies. Do all this and the body will fit fine. This kit is based on the Italian Fiat "Topolino" which was used by the Germans in WW2 as a staff car and recon car in N. Africa. Tamiya has the French "Simca" model in 1/35 as a 2 seat staff car. Bronco has the Italian 2 seat Topolino and Afrika Korps recon car in 1/35. This would have been a hard kit for a 10 year old in 1963, but this has been an interesting but challenging kit in 2022 for me.
