Leaving about 1.30 Sunday morning so at yours for 3.30 ? I don't mind a milk chocolate hobnob but a a lemon puff would be ace, cheers.

TBH a full English wouldn't go amiss...

I bet it wouldn`t..... very partial to fry up breakfast myself!!......
However,ringing the bell at 3:30 AM, all you`d get from Fort Smythe would be no reply:sleeping:!!....
...... if you made it more like 7:30,well,THEN,you`d be on!!;)

Hi Dan
The tracks do look good and without too much hassle. PE grill will look far nicer.

I'm back ! It is a real hope of mine that after the current madness that my life seems to have become has subsided, I might be able to spend decent spells of time building kits.

Found a couple of hours today....







Relieved they're finished, though I'm glad I put the effort in.

I've got the place to myself this weekend, hopefully I'll make some meaningful progress on the bodywork.

Cheers,

Dan.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

After all that fiddling around I felt a shameless hammer at building the body was in order.

Just did enough to make it look enough like a complete vehicle without jeopardising the end result.

/ such a child....





Pleased with the PE grill so far, definitely worth the effort.

3 week update. Wow. 3 weeks....

Trust me, it's not for want of trying !

Got a bit of paint on the bodywork & started on the trailer. There has been a bit more progress but I'll save that for the next post. Not going to start weathering the FAMO until I've done the trailer, I'm not proficient enough to have an M.O. that can be executed weeks apart. One thing's for sure though, this is going to be the first of many Sd.Kfz 9's to grace my table..... Love 'em.



Loving that grill





I'm having a little dust-up with the wire connecting rods for the trailer steer this evening, tolerances aren't quite tight enough on the ends to stop them falling off the screws. 99/100 for Tamiya otherwise !
