Gonna need some more filler
The close-up photo is a bit cruel, but this kit is going to need a little bit of fetling to look good. There's not a lot of alignment aids in this collection of parts. The front of the dashboard and back of the radiator have moulded shelves on to which the bonnet top and sides sit, but they are more suggestions than absolute positions.
I had to file some of them off anyway as the first attempt at fitting the radiator was twisted. This is the benefit of whitemetal soldering - you can tack things in position and if you're not happy, a touch of the iron releases them again.
Lots of fun.
