Well, not all of it – there’s still loads more to attach.
Despite all the fiddly PE, this kit is coming together surprisingly quickly. Saturday was mainly spent getting the chassis almost finished, and attaching the wheels. The chassis parts were a little warped once assembled. It is possible that was my fault – this is my first time building a vehicle with a ‘ladder’ chassis. It was simple enough to straighten out, and all 10 wheels are sitting square on the cutting mat. Yay!
I have used tow cable from Karaya in Poland, and I highly recommend it. It looks realistic, don’t you think?
Sunday has mostly been spent adding the photoetch. I am using the excellent Eduard set for this kit, and you can see the degree of difference it makes.
