|Bedford chassis fitted with wheels. Despite lack of decent location points I managed to get all four wheels touching the ground without trouble.|
|The single axle trailer ready for wheels. Not too many parts for this item that is made up from primarily one huge casting.|
The lorry cab is a nice casting but care must be taken when removing the flash in window and door openings. The cab interior is sparse (as it was on the original lorry). I had to substitute a steering wheel and column as the kit part was broken. Some of the parts are from etched metal and are quite nice. I'm wondering if I should leave a cab door open to show the details?
|Wheels fitted to the trailer and cab interior primed.|
|I couldn't resist placing one of my 1:35 locomotives on the trailer. It gives new motivation to carry on building!|
