Hello

I actually finished this project a few months ago but I just got around to snapping a few pics.











It was a fun and challenging project. The next question is what to do for my next scratch build.

Beautiful Mark. I'd love to post some pics on WarWheels. Can I "lift" these? If so, great. Also, I'd love to get any more you have. Contact me direct at editor@warwheels.Net

Excellent scratchbuild of a great subject. I've scratchbuilt a C15TA and I'm considering doing an Otter. Just need to muster the courage for such a long project.

Then ..... you get as many photos as you can find and when combined with the drawings I actually make a set of plans which get pinned to the wall. I try to avoid mistakes at this phase but they happen at which point you try, try, try again.
