Yikes!! I looked in on your build Phil and thought I'd tuned into an episode of David Attenborough's 'Blue Planet'!! With all of those wheels laid out in rows like that it looks like the suckers on a giant octopus and he's wrapped his arms around your modelling bench! Laugh BigGrin

I don't envy you cleaning up and painting that lot, but making good progress with this already!! Blink Blink

Nice work on this Phil, really making some good progress with it and well done you for your perseverance with all of those suspension parts, wheels and sprockets! It can be boring doing repetitive assemblies like those but I find a constant flow of good coffee and some good music usually keeps me at it and then it's all done before you know it?!

Well done! Cool ThumpUp
