#17 is the passenger seat,
from #18 on we'll get various bits to finish the seats (like head rests etc etc) and with #21 we'll get the interiour platform...

I would imagine the platform to be a felt finish. wonder what the seats will be like

my first seat probably already arrived at home - maybe I can let you know on saturday as I have a few hours off and will visit family...
trouble is however that there's a parting line that is rather visible on top of the seat and unless it's covered by the head rest mount will ruin the overall look...

look forward to seeing what the seat looks like BA
the pics i have seen show many seam lines and i didn't like the screws used on the head rest chrome fittings

a bit boring though - we had two deliveries of seat parts and two deliveries of seat hardware + base + head rest...
hope #24 will be something interesting but maybe just the rear seat... by then the internals will be almost complete so they'll need to come up with suspension or bodywork frame parts...

...of course it's only the rear seat lower part,
some on the french forum have already startet talking about milking the model as there's nothing to be done with the single piece in #24, just store it for better times... :?

if I recall right, we've had the piccies up to #16 (drivers seat) on another thread - here's now the rest:

#17 passenger front seat with small hardware
Image

#18 drivers seat lower rail and head rest hardware
Image

#19 just the same minus one of the levers for the seat (no hight adjustment on the passenger side...

#20 arm rest front, will go between the front seats
Image

#21 passenger cabin floor, quite a big piece, covered in flocking to resemble a carpet
Image

#22 accelerator + brake pedal (the famous mushroom) including electric wiring + chromed side protector
Image

as with today we are two issues down from the altaya site listing, next issue should go online tomorrow, by then the carpets should be available to the public #23)
more with the next 3 issues...

next up are the carpet and back seat:

#23 carpet, looks like a self adhesive felt in two pieces
Image

#24 back seat lower piece, one single large part
Image

#25 back seat rest with fold out arm rest + hardware
Image

of course the back side of the back rest should be black felt as that is what can be seen from the boot side, more about that later on in the build...

next part is already on order, the lower front bulkhead - the cabin side, then comes a complete set for the offside front wheel and the chassis, let's see what they come up with next as #29...

next batch arrived here:

#26 dashboard base/firewall assembly with cables, map pocket
Image

#27 offisde front wheel assembly including half of the half shaft + hardware
Image

#28 chassis, a real monster, see second picture atop of the db5 :mrgreen: 1600 grams heavy
Image
all heavy metal, will need to be painted black from underneath as it was always black
Image

#29 rear wheel water fenders front and rear, front piece form same side -
as we've got such a hefty piece last time here's now a real joke as we have to pay for the generous #28 offering :?
Image

next up will be the same ridiculous parts for the other side + 2 issues containing one of the complete rear suspension parts...

news arrived, as ever a few issues off pace...

#30 second part of fender plastic pieces
Image

#31 rear left suspension pieces including all necessary cog wheels for level adjustment
Image

#32 rear left suspension actuator motor, including gearbox, a pretty tiny package, as can be seen...
Image

there are two end switches included, so the suspension motor will probably be auto-cut-off once the end position (high or low) is reached,
should be interesting to see how they managed the electronics, a remote would work best, let's see -
next up is the front chassis bridge which will enable us to place the engine where it belongs to...

next issues arrived:

#33 a massive front chassis part, will carry the engine and parts of the suspension, should be black of course
Image
#34 next suspension actuator motor:
Image
#35 fitting rear suspension pieces, with these we have finished the rear suspension:
Image

next two issues (already ordered) get us two more motors for the front suspension + two more issues of suspension parts will finish the front...
