A few more pictures of the KT Validation build as well a the growing piles of finished parts that will need packing soon.

Starting with some fantastic sample castings that we have just received. Nice to be working with smaller cast parts after the last lot !

Any KT update photos? I know we saw the a hybrid photo in the JT sub forum but it would be nice to see any updated prototype build here.

Will get some more photos shortly.
The Production Validation Build gets built and stripped as we check parts - so right now it is without suspension and turret. We will try to get the whole thing reassembled for some photos before the end of the month.
