BigGrin Hi all

About time I made a start on this and the kit review can be found here-

https://forum.model-spac...spx?g=posts&t=30921

Firstly the engine and gearbox are made up and I have made a start on the painting. Next it was the forward axle and wheels followed by air tanks and the rear axle assembly. There is still another central gearbox to be added along with more detail.

More soon.
