Hi all,

I'd like to improve the interior of this model a little bit, but i'm stuck when trying to open the undercarriage. I've lossened all the screws but the front part still attached firmly to the body. Any idea how i can go from there?

The issue is to do with the front splitter, which is glued to the floor.
You will need to prise this apart (carefully!).
I had to open mine because the passenger side door was sagging.
This required me to rework the hinge mountings where they are screwed to the body.

Hi slartibartfast,

I've gone as far as removing the thin front splitter. Here's how it looks

8 screws were removed and glue residue were also removed from the close side of the splitter. Should i remove more glue or is there anything that i missed?

Thanks in advance!

On mine, the floor at the front was glued to the matt black splitter.
I had to use a thin, but strong blade to prise the front of the floor away.
Care is needed, but I managed it without damage.
Sometimes you have to swallow hard and go for it.
Since I have many years of building kits of varying complexity, I felt I could repair any problems.
