Body and Suspension and Tires - Oh My!

Today I finally got to start putting parts together, always the fun portion of the project... Started with attaching the suspension to the lower half of the body. 
Once the super glue dried I continued with the tires. I unfortunately broke a pin which was to hold a back wheel because the super glue dried to fast for me to properly manipulate the part. I had to eyeball it and hold the part steady while the glue dried. I'm sure the Germans won't mind my almost perfect alignment.

Have a Seat

After the tires I completed touching up the chairs with the painted black leather using Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black. Using toothpicks glued temporarily with hot glue sure makes painting easy.

Just finished repainting the five tires black after having to airbrush the Schwimmwagen since the rims had to change color.
