The image is said to have been taken in Sicily, which may account for the absence of Dust Shield and different tracks Also, it looks as if its Germ...

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. Don't tell Adrian Harris, but he's going to need even more M2 Locknuts :twisted: To correct my spherical object-up I removed the bogie and drilled a h...

Re: Pete's Grant No.9

Yeah!!! :D Ten minutes work this afternoon and three sets of road wheels fitted to one side. :D Having the hull upside down helped, let gravity work for you I say instead of trying to hold everything up against it.
