I've got as far as removing as many screws as I can see and the exhausts are free.
But something is holding solid the rear area around the fuel tank.
Anyone have any ideas?

OMG!! Taking a CMC apart is SCARY! :omg:  I just took part an AUTOart model where the door  wasn't screwed on and that was a bish!! So, even though I used to build detailed model kits, CMCs aren't something that I would tackle. :dizzy:  I hope that you have success! :occasion14:

I'm beginning to have my doubts! I wanted to remove the engine but this thing is solid!
It has no wheels but I'd rather a chassis on display than nothing!

I'm getting somewhere! By removing the spare wheel and fuel tank I have more movement!
The seats are stuck to the body shell so they are next on the list to be removed!

Just be aware that some screws are hidden if you want to get the rest of the body off. I don't know exactly where they are though. Not very helpful, I know, but good luck!

I've done it!
Cutting along the back of the seat released the glue holding them in place. Other than that the fuel pump in the boot needs removing before the whole thing can be slowly pushed out using the seat base as an anchor! Pics to come...

Trust me, I wouldn't have done it if it owed me anything, or if it had a numbered certificate!
I was really after the engine so I could display it on a plinth like the other engines they do.

Here are some pics of the disassembled model:

This frees the seats from the body.

The engine also took a bit of work to release, and once a few parts have been glued back in place will be good enough to display.
