For a few weeks I have been working on a few sub-assemblies for this kitset. I have been approaching it rather slowly as I'm aware there are major flaws with the accuracy of the cab so I'm waiting to see if any after market replacements are produced.

So far it has been a pleasure to assemble with little flash and all parts fit well.

The NZR had two ex-Army Scammells as breakdown vehicle for Railways Road Services - one was a true breakdown vehicle, the other an artillery tractor. NZR made a few changes which I will be incorporating. More to follow.

Nice project. Are you making it up as the one in the photo or in military guise?

I'm making it as an NZR Scammell. Another railways project will be on of the ex RNZAF Ford Bomb trucks that NZR also used as breakdown trucks.

Yeah I finally found a simple fix to the cab front error. www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/t...down-tractor/&page=2

So progress will resume over the holidays.
