Thanks Tony ,,,,,,,,,,,,, It is getting to be a challenge to get as close as I can !!!!! I really do appreciate how tough it is for the master builders to get the real accuracy in other scales !!!!!!!! Hard enough for me to get close in 1/24 th but good fun trying !!!!

I am getting into a point where I should really start painting things as it is starting to get too busy around the engine bay !!!

Every penny is a prisoner these days so it does help to recycle when I can !!!!!!!!

Filling up the chassis

A wee bit of a break and only the brakes been worked on

The bleedin glues refused to take any hold on the mix of plastic tubing leaving the rings floating about or popping off at the slightest nudge !! Thought a light sanding would help, but still an issue even now !!!

Am finding blue tack to be a very useful third hand for jobs like drilling and even cutting

And had to fix a screw up with flexi pipe routes

Have been getting time to tinker with the plastic while I am up at Lossiemouth at the caravan (likely the last time at Silver Sands unfortunately).

 

My work bench for the two weeks

Getting all the bits to fit just right is bleeding awkward especially as a couple of mm out in one place throws things out elsewhere ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and it is so hard to predict where the effect will knock on to or multiply up until you hit the next problem area !!!!!!! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG ,,,,,,,,,,,,, Will be a few cuts and shuts in areas hopefully that will be hidden from view except for those in the know !!!!!!!

Mounting the cab has meant having to tweek the front axle and the bumper to make sure the cab sits right !!!!!
