Looks good John.
Amazing what you can do with a double ‘A’ battery and a ring pull. :D

Re: Mike's M3 Lee #12 Little Build Things

All good stuff mike.
I have just discovered the hinge pins myself and I don’t think one of my doors will be opening in a hurry.

Thanks in advance.

Hello. I thought I would start a thread to tap into the vast knowledge that you gentlemen have and as the build goes on maybe pass a bit of knowledge back.
