Just thought I would give you all a little peek at my latest project that I am part of the way through.

I have uploaded a WIP in the photo album this I will be adding to as I progress. I have altered the original plans to suit myself as there where certain things that I thought are needed to put on it.

This is a toy and not a scale model.

Forgot to say that the cab roof is not yet fixed and the piece of wood supporting the front end is just there to do that

Hope you all enjoy the build so far

The kids are gonna love this as well as the young at heart. Excellent on the build and every detail of the design is so well thought of. Another winning piece!
