The Panther is now on the back burner and the start of two Elefant builds is about to begin.

The UPS man nearly died carrying this lot in, there are 2 more large boxes that are not in the shot.

I am a bit concerned Steve about how little space you have in that workshop.
I know what you have up there now and cant figure out where you are going to put them, let alone building 2 Elephants at once.
Cheers

Both of the Elefants are being built at the same time and so far I have had no issues putting them together.
