Some pins to remove, most are intelligently placed and invisible in the end:

This bolts are referred to as parts X1 but there is no Sprue Tree X. They are on the runner of Sprue Tree A.

Looks to be a nice kit still!

Looks like a cool little kit and a fun build as well. Ironically, I just saw these on Ebay the other night and was wondering about the quality of the kit. Thank you for posting pictures of the sprues.

The build so far is trouble free and quite detailed. I would like to replace the vinyl tires and LZ Models has already release replacements in resin. Also, I will add cabling, pipes, and wiring which are missing.

We had a VAC or several on the farm. Don't remember them having the belt drive, it must be an option or add on.

I don't know the exact model (VAC? VAI?) but the belt drive is an option for some tool as it has the brake lever not in the kit. There was another variant of the kit as a loader.
