Milo,

I think Gans is asking about the plastic wrapped bottles you have behind your drivers seat.

I too would like to know how you did them??

I have a question for you Milo...

I've started on the tractor unit M1070 having finished the Trailer M1000, and will be getting one of your engine sets for sure

Should I fit part B5 between the Frame rails? This part has the engine sump moulded on it, but is a massive flat panel, which is inaccurate.
I'm also wondering if I should fit the transfer box, parts A6, A27 and A28, as they also have a large flat section, which is inaccurate.

I would rather scratch build some accurate mounts rather than use these big flat panels.

Hi,
You don't used B5, next parts are OK for use.

I know we are all pestering you for the engine, do you have a date in mind when it will be done. don't hurry its a work of art, better than AA's and I think will be real popular.

Hello Miloslav!

Hope all is well; sorry to hijack your thread.

Page 1 of the instructions... on the front of the frame there is a kind of brace or cross member, but no part number on the instructions... you know what the part number is?

Is there a thread with observations related to known instruction issues? Just started my kit...DAMN is this a big kit!

Thanks!

Jorge
