Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hi Andy, it's just malleable tying wire 2mm diameter. It's the tiny brackets that are so fidley ! Now onto the front casting, you guys are gonna have fun with getting this to fit, best leave the hull fixings loose or just nipped up so that the hull width can move a bit.

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

The coms plumbing, well some of it, still have around 10 more tiny conduit brackets to make and some double cable runs under the rear box to complete. Then some big, as in full size weld runs and we can move on. The large and small exhausts and flanges are also needed to complete the look. 8) Thanks...

Re: Milling Machine

Or you could get one of these see below! 8) we have to be careful talking about the need for machine tools as we could put potential customers off the brand, I do use them but it's all possible without and a whole lot cheaper. 8)

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

The rear box will need a fair bit of work if you are fussy. I am currently trying the barrel clamp always but may put it back up a tad and the other way round 8)
