Seat front and centre for this one Lee. Terrific choice. Looking forward to seeing the scratch work. Will you be putting the Flak Unit on a sledge in the back??

Lee,

You could combine this one with the Bedford?/ :smiling:
Just thinking aloud - maybe a broken down Half track - captured Bedford - troops loading the
Flak Gun onto the back?? :tongue-out3:

Paul.
:smiling:

O.K. - Slap me and I'll forget the idea!!!! :flushed:

Ok. I’ve decided to go forward with this one. I’ll just have to think it through on the scratch building and take it slowly. Here’s a update on today’s building. I found some sides and made a bed for it. This post Covid messes with your thinking I have trouble remembering I know I was going to put crossmembers on it by reading the last post I made. But I can’t remember how I was going to do it. Today was a bad day lots of shortness of breath and memory lost. I hate this virus. I wanted to work more but couldn’t concentrate any more. Thanks sorry I’m flipping like a pancake but this is my entry. E5E36B58-7EC6-47E7-B1B8-BD83D3153790.jpeg12F9EC16-1BBD-4682-A6A7-A6E36E93243C.jpeg

Good to see you back at it Lee.

I've heard family & friends speak of the post-covid "fogginess" so just take your time and don't force it. We'll be here for as long as it takes :thumb2:

Good to see you back at the bench Lee. Take it over step at a time and don't rush your recovery.

Looks like a good project Lee, just do a bit as you feel up to it, Simon always said he never managed to finish a build for a GB in time!
