last of the brackets for the rear of the shield made and fitted, fuse indicator represented by a piece of brass strip, and housed in its canvas case, still have lots of leather straps to make, then on to the front of the shield

finished detailing rear of the shield, and made a start on the front, the aiming poles and brackets took a bit of head scratching, to get them to be functional, just the white numbers and banding to do, also made some of the tools, and remade the brackets for the pickaxe head

Thanks Stephen, not many updates to come, all the main elements completed, just straps and a couple of tie downs to do, finished the aiming poles, these have steel shafts and arms, used the kit shovel head but with a wooden handle, and fitted one of Dave's drag ropes

The 25 pounder is now finished, although there might be an update if an ongoing project comes to fruition, its has been a very enjoyable build, light and easy to work on, and plenty of scope for detailing, plus plenty of help and encouragement from the forum.
Anyone guess what my next project is

Jeff, this is one of those threads that really has been worth following. I've not only enjoyed watching an outstanding model being built but have picked up some new techniques along the way. I've already invested in an engraving machine, inspired by your examples of what can be achieved. Thanks for all your posts.

I suppose the obvious answer to your question is the limber but is that too easy? A Pheasant? Whatever, it'll be worth following.
