Look forward to your build diary and never feel too embarassed to ask for help if you need it, no matter how trivial it may seem, most guys on here are only too pleased and willing to help.

Hi Kev,
That is a full scale ArchieLOL
He is a lovely cat.
I had no trouble building himLOL
Thanks for the nice comments.
This my first attempt at something on this scale!
I think the important thing with this build is to take your time as lots of memembers have said.
After all we only have to wait until Christmas 2012 to complete itLOL
I hope we get offered those wet weather tyres and trolley at a later date like the japanese have.
That would be sweet!!!

BigGrin Hi Chris,

Tell your mate if he really believes the prophecy that much, he should quit work and spend the time eating, drinking and fornicating and just enjoying his last 15 months on Earth!! LOL LOL

Hey Chris, Looking good ThumpUp

I like your choice of assistant, though he could have some problems holding things together for you - as fur & Super Glue don't mixLOL
Well spin my nipple-nuts & send me to Alaska
