Made some more progress and quiet pleased with the result.
I have to be very careful as the paint is very soft and will chip easily so I just touch in as required.

Well I have finally completed the cab except for the drain pipes because they seem rather vulnerable until the body is on the chassis. Not too happy about the roof to back arch fit, will have to give it some thought. Made myself a lot of work by glazing the windows but I think it was worth it and there is no time constraint.

Super work here.I had the same issue with the rear cab roof.I ended up clamping the roof to the trim piece and using epoxy to hold them together.There is not a lot of contact area so I applied a seam of epoxy on the inner side of the trim piece.

Hi everyone,
I'm afraid my build diary fell by the wayside for various reasons but I have completed the D51 and very pleased with it. So here are my final photos.
