I am putting this one here as I don't think it has a place anywhere else.
I have started some of it but there is still lots to do so here's some pics of what is done and what's leftover.
I will carry on after my current 109 build.20190131_132456.jpg20190131_132505.jpg20190131_132513.jpg20190131_132524.jpg20190131_132534.jpg20190131_132558.jpg20190131_132607.jpg

Interesting subject.
I would have thought civilian vehicles might have been an OK place, it is after all a bus. Albeit a very old one. Lol.
I didn't think of it like that.

While I seem to have developed problems with the 109 I thought I would have a go at putting together the wheels.
I have had to highlight the formers so I know where to put the spokes.328407328408328409

Love the wheel assembly, most impressed with the whole idea of using wood as oposed to the normal plastic .
Shall follow with interest .

Hi Peter
Not seen anything like this before. You seem to be handling it well. Will you paint it or will you leave it in a natural finish?

I finally managed to finish all four wheels that's after I took the first one apart a few times before I cracked it.328663

Really interesting kit, Peter.
I love to work over wood, good sensations and infinite weathering possibilities :upside:
