Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

For some reason I must have been so enthusiastic to get started on this one I totally forgot to take a picture with the border completed but it went very well. It was easy enough to pick out the greens, blue and lettering so they were assembled first. Then I worked my way down the side of the vehicle leaving mainly the black (dark) and white (shades) left. 

The shades of white/greys went together much quicker than the blacks and darks. This being a ribbon-grid cut it is possible that pieces 'appear' to fit in more than one place which was trickiest in the black/dark areas.

Comments

It should be noted that their puzzles are supplied with a resealable bag which is especially appreciated by us Puzzlers!

The following image shares the information on the back of the box which is about the company and the artist. Below that is a couple of closeup photos sharing the nice smooth finish to the pieces.
