Hi chaps, well after a week of being drunk errrrrm having fun back in the UK , I am now back at the bench . Many thanks for the praise and for putting up with me ruin this kit too .
Todays workings are this: Tool box Front axle steering Cabbage and snout
These parts might look simple, but I found them a little trying to get together . They are all multi-part side and top affairs, maybe I'm just getting old and that could be the reason for the problems I had . But they are now together, apart from the snout and the cab. I still have a little sanding to do here.
Also to keep the steering steerable, I had to add 2 pieces of punched white card to attachments, without these the connecting bar just kept popping off .
Oh yes, I had to fill 4 nasty little release holes on the cab sides, these would, I believe, be visible later otherwise .
