Comments This is a fine kit and Jim James gives a great review. I like the idea of cutting off the nose to eliminate the seam. I do recommend completing the steering assembly as instructed. If carefully assembled, the steering wheel will turn the front wheels (you cannot, however, turn the steering wheel by turning the wheels). How to do this? First insert the steering shaft into the axel assembly. Then mount the completed cockpit onto the chassis allowing the other end of the steering shaft to slide through the steering column. The steering shaft will have to bend a little to clear the homing robot bay support structure, but not enough to impede motion. Try it, you won't be sorry!
