The Lincoln Continental was a level 2 and was harder to assemble than the Ford Cabriolet that was a level 3! I will admit that I had problems getting both sides of the floor pan and both sixes of the doors and both sides of the firewall spray painted in the right colors. The trunk and fenders were 3 pieces and left some nasty seems that required filler. The front fenders were each in two pieces. The alignment of all the pieces is close but not exactly right. My next model is a $54.99 ICM model of a Packard Twelve (Series 1408) which should be a much better quality model. Interestingly enough this model had no chrome plated parts!
