Mick

So pleased to hear you have been able to get back to this one as it would have been a shame after having started it.

I very much like the pre-finished paintwork on this kit.

Hoping the rest of your build goes well.

PACK 8
Stage 61
The cab 8
Here we screw on the left and right cab end beams. Place the body on the chassis and screw it on via 4 screw at the back. Then we put the brackets onto the gutter pipes.and fit these to the rear of the cab.had to file my holes a little as brackets were to big to go in.i decided to fit the brackets that hold the end of the pipes before I glued the brackets to the cab just to make sure all aligned. The left hand bracket screws into the distribution valve.and the right uses nuts and bolts to fit it.this is as far as got now as you can see by tape holding all in place till glue sets. More soon cheers mick.BigGrin
