Well I got stuck into the 1st delivery

I have noticed that some of the screws provided are of different lengths but their is no indication in the build instructions of which goes where.

I have found it is best to use the screws to cut the threads in the plastic fitting prior to adding them to the model.

I have a question to anyone who has already built this model. When constructing the first idler wheel I notice that the three screws provided do not full insert into the wheel. The fitting feels firm enough but the screws stand proud of the wheel. I do not want to apply too much pressure as this might snap the screws in the fitting.

Will now have to wait for my next delivery

Decided to assemble the track links I have already received. Some of the pins require a bit more persuading to fit.

To avoid any potential damage to the links and broken pins I now ensure the castings are clear by using a 1mm drill bit on all the pin holes to ensure there are no blockages/restrictions.
