Hi Ken, BigGrin

This is the first one of these kits that I recall being painted and it looks good.

That is one heck of a gear train on this. Blink Blink

Will be watching for the end result. ThumpUp ThumpUp

Good luck with the rest of this build.

Hi Ken. That's a great idea to paint the various parts. I've never seen one done like that before. Can't wait to see how it progresses.ThumpUp

Hi all, a little modification needed to make for smooth running.




I quite like the way it looks painted (far more interesting than wood)

Coming along very nicely kpnuts and I must say that it's the first one of these kits that I've seen painted. Great idea.

There's far more work in the ladder assu than the bodywork and it's far more difficult to get a smooth action but I'm quite pleased with how it's working.

Nearing completion now, I may repaint the metal parts to look, well more like metal.
