Hello Bob

really impressive build with all the finesse and most modern technologies up to 3-D printing from metal.
It is always a pleasure to watch the model evolve.

Best regards,
Oliver
Yes, you sure are a pathfinder, Bob! :D

A few of the latest shots of E8. Finally got the removable top and rear deck mounting done. Both rear and front decking are removable for access to internal components. Held in place by friction and brass lugs. The lugs hold the deck firmly in place at exactly the right height.
Next up main motor test.

Mark, David, Simon, Jeff, thanks for the feedback. Jeff I let the 1000 lb lift table do the heavy lifting of the AT tanks. The barbells are just for decoration - to give the illusion of fitness. LOL. I'm either getting older or these models are getting heavier. 8)
Best regards all,
Bob
