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.

BigGrin Hi All

More done on the chassis the mid point transfere box and there drive shafts have been added along with more winches and there drive shafts. The running boards have also been fixed along with the main crane base and storage boxes. Some etch has been added at the front along with the lights and siren. The engine has been dirtied up and the pipe work added. The last couple of pictures show the chassis with a coat of undercoat.

More soon
