Re: Pete's Grant No.9

Thanks Kian.

Only used a Vice in the Workshop to press the hinge pins into the Hinges, Ad breaks and boring interludes to get the parts and fasteners. I'm finding with this Kit that so much ...

Re: Pete's Grant No.9

Back on Track...... Geddit? Tracks fitted...'Back on track? :roll: Pun Intended. For those who have yet to make their tracks, 82 are needed per side.
