well, that is another story, so most things "out-of-the-box"...

Out and in the box lots of times until complete, then locked in display case or up on high shelves!
Working approx 60 hours a week, 2 kids and 60-100 miles cycling a week limits the time to do the painting and any little mods I would have the skill to do also. Maybe in about 15-20 years......

I'm (as many others) curious about how they'll actaute the whole thingy -
it's almost certainly clear that there'll be only two levels (hi-lo) but will there be a remote or will we need to twiddle with the car in one way or the other...

All I can say is the motors turn bigger cogs, and there is micro switches mounted at the top and bottom of the arc that the arms turn thru- so I think it will be able to stop at any point/height thru the height range- there is no suggestion at the current point how it will adjust(part37) but then with it all in French I may have missed some information.

...as far as i see from the assembly the micro switches end the travel on both sides (hi-lo) actuated by an arm attached to the main swing arm axle - but no where in between,
still a lovely way to do it as it's not simply a lever that you need to pull/push to adjust height like on some 1:87 and 1:18 models...

some great news andrew - I think I should dig for my parts as well - as soon as our home is in shape again after the heavy construction we're having here...
at least I can get some nice views from your car :)
