The subject of this group build is to take a model off your shelf that's been sitting there unfinished and finish it.
To start post photos of your model(s) in it's current state with a quick blurb of what version you were building and why it ended up abandoned. Then blog and post photos of you finishing it!
Extra kudos the older it is.

I started this sometime last year and due to the extensive mods I planned work on this was slow it then got shelved by the long tom conversion which I unfortunately didn't get finished in time so I'll have to get back to that as well at some point



I managed to get the lower hull butchered ready to receive the engine but from this I've essentially got to build it backwards so I can use the upper as a frame to ensure the chassis is rebuilt to the correct dimensions

I managed to get a bit more work on this and managed to get the cab finished. Also a quick test fit shows that despite me chopping a piece out the chassis seems to fit back together right so hopefully the engine mounting goes ok. It's just figuring out the best way to mount the front wheels as the mounting points for the movable front axle where part of the bit I chopped out
