Hola Alberto,

How nice to see the diamond pattern aluminium sheet and little front-fender springs were added in your Elefant.

I have done the addings too. For me they are the must details that can't be ignored, and I shall say that you have done it beautifully. :idea:

The idea is to hide all the bolts that hold from the exterior all the plates, after that we try to use the ones that the Elefat has in real life, we change the internal metallic angles and switch with a aluminium ones thiker of course to tap it, so, unscrewing the bolts you see in the pictures is the only thing you need to remove the entire engine deck :wink:
