That’s a lot of parts. It says no glue, I’m assuming you just snap fit these then.

That's right, no glue although I prefer to say "push Fit". I hope to avoid any "Snap fit" issues

Bit more progress with this build. As I have already mentioned NO glue is required as all the components are push fit. Some are a bit tight and I have found that using one of my small G Clamps to assist allows me to apply an even pressure to both ends/sides of the fitting. Have to be careful to ensure the piece being fitted goes on straight when being installed. Have lost count of the number of cogs/gear wheels there are.

Hi Gil, BigGrin

That is an impressive gearing system. Cool Cool

Not sure what the coil of metal looking band is for, but if its the main spring for the mechanism you better get your running shoes on as it will take off when you let it go.LOL LOL LOL .

Or, is that the secret of all those gears.Blink Blink

Looking forward for the next update.Drool

Very impressive, Gil.
That coil spring does look a bit vicious. BigGrin BigGrin
You are making a great job of this and look forward to further updates.

Thanks for the feedback

The coil spring has yet to be wound (carefully)into the body of the vehicle.

That is a fun time but I have done it before so hopefully all will go well

This build has been progressing OK. Not able to post due to the loading of picture problems which hopefully have been resolved.

The build has continued with the addition of various chassis components.

Wheels/Tracks to be added.

Pictures attached (Hopefully)

Finally just 4 Tracked "Wheels" to construct. I think the pictures say it all.

Lots of bits to fit, must be careful to get them the right way round (Speaking from experience )

That concludes this journey of 423 components
