I was hoping to do one of these in 1-87......so far no luck locating a 3 ton Bilstein at a reasonable price. Carry on Lee, should be an enjoyable build. Rick H.

Rick. Thanks hope to get a little done tonight. Some of that 1/87 is priced as much as the 1/35 scale hope you find one cheap like to see you build one of these in 1/87. Thanks for stopping by.

Here’s some updates. I fixed the front Axle where it would be level those pics are from the old thread. This morning I weathered the tracks going to let these dry and put the final touch on them. 14B71A55-A04F-4910-831A-60C2E6812D0D.jpeg42FDA37A-6CCA-4B67-B9CD-01BA4096E9F4.jpeg82AFA67A-6473-4206-AEE5-39FAB58B1846.jpeg287EADA0-9583-45C8-9FFA-66A41491D364.jpeg285A29A2-AB7D-465C-962E-CF69C088BB9F.jpeg
