It's looking really impressive.
I've been tempted by one of their Lisbon tram kits. I might just give it a go after seeing your build.

Not posted for a while. This build has slowed due to School Holidays followed by the “urgent need for some redecoration” (According to the Boss)
Since my last post:-
Prepared the end panels using a simple homemade jig. Soaked and carefully shaped. Left overnight
Installed both end panels, added the brass edging using brass rods from my stash. I found the brass supplied with the kit too soft and it seemed to lose its shape easily.
Added the bumpers
Constructed the suspension from the various parts (there are a lot)
Added the upper decking
Constructed the wheel base and screwed it into place
Have made a number of the components I will need soon as the build progresses
Have already added some of these to the model.
There are a lot of components to this model. I seem to spend a lot of time waiting for glue or paint to dry. That’s one of the reasons why I have constructed some parts in anticipation of their install.
So far so good,
Hand rails to fit on the stairs. Upper deck screen and the 17 benches to construct, plus various notices to attach.

Been a while since I have posted on this build.

Needed to get some replacement items from OcCre. Must give then 10/10 for customer service, fill in a form online telling them what you need and in due course the items arrive from Spain with no cost to the modeller
Whilst waiting for the parts I went off script in so far as I built some parts out of sequence and set them aside till they where needed. The parts I needed have now arrived so I can go back and follow the correct build sequence.
The only criticism I have is on more than one occasion the pictures do not match the parts. Only small differences. I think at some time the kit has been updated but the pictures have not.
There are 18 benches on the top deck, each one consists of 7 parts. That’s 126 parts in all. They have yet to be glued in situ.
Onward and upward
Some pictures attached

Looking really impressive here. Those benches must have driven you potty.
I still keep thinking one of these Occre kits will have to hit my bench someday.BigGrin

As roymattblack say, those benches must have driven you mad.
But they are looking extremely good now and all worth the effort.
A very nice example and your model is making me more and more interested in getting one as a diversion from my Victory kit.

Progress report on my build
Steps added to the end platforms plus controls and support bars
2X2mm edging added to the top deck. This needs to be shaped from the 2X2mm strip wood supplied. I made a former from part of the fret which a previous component was removed. Soaked the 2X2 overnight, bent it carefully around the former and clamped it up overnight. Once dry I painted them the required black (I would recommend painting before attaching to the model).
Next the 24 stanchions where attached (again painted prior to attaching) and the two signs, one at each end.
Next comes adding the rails to the stanchions. I used brass rods from my stash. I find it easier than trying to straighten the provided brass wire.

Most impressive. Agree about the brass rod rather than the coiled wire they supply. Looks so much neater.
Well done sir.

Some lovely work there. The Brass rod makes a heck of a difference.
