Progress on the Crossley Streamlined Fire Tender, it looks something like.
Lots of little details to add.

Sorry, but I was building this in-between waiting for the glue to go off and things to set.
This is a huge chunk of white metal that I assembled using low melt solder - I tries epoxy resin (POXY really) with little success, superglue for small bits.
I see from the photo the odd joint needs work.
Photos are cruel.

If the weather improves I need to get 4 x 39ft rows of main crop potatoes in.
Luckily allotments count as exercise - lucky me, so modelling will be on the back burner maybe.

Hi Zak,
So at least we know where we can come to get some potatoes for our chips!!

While the decals set and such I have started the next vehicle, it follows on from the last one, it is part of the same picture.
This is the ambulance on a Morris Commercial D chassis, the one on the left of the picture.

Don't worry Zak,
Biggles says you can use his garage free of charge....
Most of your builds will be on the BoB display.
Sandra might say 'No' to you, Jill will say 'No' to Neil,
Who really has the power...?
The Wive's.
Cheers,
Bigkev

Oh, nice one, I could do with some of that, what are you getting.
I should probably get a very large Nissen hut.
