Well my first pack has arrived. Nice to see that it comes in a box and not the flimsy pollybag. I am thinking on changing the colour in the future but will initially build it as is and see if the red grows on me. Will get photos up once I have done the building.

A tip on posting pics: resize the pictures to a maximum of 650 pixels wide and they will appear as pics not downloads.

Thanks for all the words of encouragement, my intention is not to bore everyone with a blow by blow build guide, just pics of completed parts. Or any tricky bits I come across, after all Tomick does a great job of the blow by blow diary.

The pieces supplied in this pack go together easy enough, just remember the hot water for the tyre. The only issue I may have is that the door latch does not move very mutch when you operate the handle, I will have to wait and see if this is an issue later on.

Really pleased that the operating door windows are pre fitted.

Here are the photos, thanks for the link on how to import directly Derek. For scale is the standard size can of pop, also for those that have the Leco camper you can see that this is going to be a huge beast. Oh and heavy.
