Cheers gents. I really enjoyed building this not that i'm planning on doing another one but i am now looking at a couple of AMT pick ups that i didn't really have plans for. 1950s camper maybe?

Sorry I wasn't in the space to reply with more than a pic earlier Rob. That is friggin fantastic. I honestly thought some of the photos were of a caravan that you were copying when I first brushed through the post. It wasn't until I went back through and looked properly that I realised what I was looking at. That's how good it looks mate. I hope you're rapt with the result. I would be.

Thanks guys. Yeah im pretty happy, there's a few bits id do differently if i did it again. Like just gluing the axle straight to the frame :blush: when i did it i wasn't thinking i'd actually finish it. I wish i had taken the time to make some springs for it, How often do you lift a model up to look under it?
