the winter time is time to work on the Famo...
so I did some more detailling work. Thinking that the Famo is nerly finish...
In time I work on the engine dummy. I made it heavy with around 3kg lead bubbles, because I made the side fenders lighter. For the rigt grip on the front wheels I need some weight in the front. So with this I think its better to drive... Pictures from the engine will follow soon.

Hi guys,

thanks for the replys.
Never did a Model like this... mostly thinking, its a never ending story. Making details on a big model is like swiming in open water.
Now my rear end tailgate is also finish. In time I am working on a fiew smal electronic problems.
My to do list is still long...
- front canopy frame in scale funktionable
- front and rear seats
- side flaps from the stoage
- making the finish paint and weathering
This all musst be finish til sept. 2020, than starting my next project ;)
