Except for a few tiny parts that where too braekable in handling (They came from the sprue perfectly!). The white specs re dust from sanding the tiny mould seams.

This vintage kit was for sale for 120 Belgian Francs somewhere in the 80's in Antwerp. I opend the box a 100 times to gaze at these tiny parts. I even thought I would never build it. These parts fit perfectly, a very good plastic and no PE! (Was not invented yet...) The blue tac heaps where to set these tiny front wheels in the correct position. One of the guys thought I was creating an accident with a pedestrian from the red spec, so I teased him with the last picture.
