Here's mine.

The bonnet fought hard and I had to do some underneath butchery to get it to fit. I didn't enjoy the build and I'm just glad it's off the bench.

Ditched the kit 'metal' bed and made my own wood flatbed using Basswood and some help from JohnJ on the weathering of it.

Onwards and upwards.

That kit seems to have fought you all the way.

Very nice outcome though Al.

Onwards it is, Al. A cool little build in the end.

At least it didn't end up in a "Dead WIP Box" or marring the back wall.

Another one down.

Only 1 problem encountered and resolved.  Bought another one off Ebay for a planned mobile crane.
A fun kit to build.

Lovely job Mike and a great fix on the hood issue too.

Any plans to fill the bed with Lime? crushed or rock?

Thanks, Al. I gave thought to a load, but then thought about the mess it would make on the model shelf as it leaked out.  The load would have to be glued solid or a fake load made up with the material glued down over the top only.  Perhaps one day.
