Hello Simon,

really fantastic work you're doing here. I'm a lazy poster but follow your build now pretty long :wink:
It is a great source of inspiration and will be for sure the base once my 7 will be on the bench.
For now its great to see the very high level of detail and ideas I can transfer on my Famo project :idea: 8)

cheers, Uwe :)

Thank you all for the Praise, A small step was to start to make the wipers, you forget how much there is to them, some more tweaking and rubber blades to fit, i spent some time looking for these to buy but no luck or they were made of plastic, many thanks simon.

Thanks Tim, glad you are enjoying the build, they are a great kit, Here's a little progress, still working on the windscreen, making the wiper motors and connection's, i believe the wipers were compressed air driven, not something i would like to replicate, thanks for looking, regards simon.

It IS! Perhaps the very large couch is fooling you? :wink:
