Stewart,
Really nice looking 88. That is one impressive model. Wheels up or down, every bit a killer. Are you sure that is a stock build?

Pardon my avatar has left for a slight tune up.

Kind regards,
Bob

Many thanks for your replies guys :D

Steve I am in all day tomorrow mate.

Bob yes its tthe basic kit build as described :)

A rivet counter might or might not have noticed a 3mm grub screw on the
cruciform sides ?
Erm I let the pivot axles rust a little and had to sand them down a little,
well a hell of a lot actually so they ended up a little of a loose fit :oops:
Lol easily fixed with a grub screw.

The towing bar is held in place with a ......

stem from an office seat roller ball cut down to size and held in place
with a reshaped paper clip :lol:

Regards Stewart
