Looking good Ken.
Just wondering though, is the front spring shackle upside down?
It seems to be opposite to the rear shackle.

Watching with interest; how good are spoke wheel castings, are there aftermarket real wire spoke wheel available?

Yes Roy I thought that strange but it is according to the instructions.
Dustin there are after market wheels for it but I think the wheels look fine that come with the kit so I will be using those, although I have bought a lock wire bolt kit for it.
more work on the engine, the pipework is supposed to be gunmetal (why? Surley it would be steel or ally) anyway I decided for a bit of interest I would do it copper.





Added some weathering to the engine.

Nicely done so far, nice details in the screw and bolt heads too, other than the wheel lock is everything else box stock that you've done?

Yes all out of the box (well apart from the added copper pipework) yes there are after market wheels available but I don't think there's much wrong either the kit ones, let's face it this will probably end up in the shed, if my skills were upto someone commissioning me to build a model for them maybe I would go for A/M parts (or maybe not, not much skill in attaching A/M parts) I will admit I have bought the wire locking bolt kit for this.but again it will only end up in the shed.

Hi all there are upgrade kits for the wheels of this kit but I honestly can see nothing wrong with the kit ones, they don't even need cleaning no flash of anything.
