Hi Guys,
Just some early pics of the project, built (almost!) OOB. Quite impressed so far. More work to do, will post more pics soon.

Hello
What is your strategy of painting this beast, keeping in mind that most of major parts is glued together?

Hi Przemyslaw,
I always fully assemble the model, apart from the outer roadwheels, and do the detail painting later. I'll post some more in progress shots soon.

..looks a little undersized. The width should be 1.4mm.



I'm not sure that PE is the best medium, either. Look at the thickness.

Hi David,
Thanks for that. yes, it does look a bit small in the pics. Its the correct part from the PART set, but I'll see if I have any alternatives.
