Hi all well this is done but with the lighting I feel 10 pics is not enough so will post this in 2 parts, it is a great kit with only a couple of minor flaws, well make that 3

1 on distributor included with kit (but that is easily scratch built)

2 the working steering is useless it only turns about 19 degrees.

3 well I suppose I could include this with 2 the steering is not anchored in any way (so the steering wheel can be pulled up and down which disengage the drive.

Other than that everything fits well. I know it seems silly but one of the details that really impressed me is the individually turned air valves for the wheels.










Ken's the name modeling's the game.

I think that's your best ever build Ken, looks really good and you have a nice gloss finish to the bodywork too.

Well done. Cool ThumpUp

Someone said the control box spoilt the look of it so I moved it and painted it black
