Those gaps aren't a problem to you rich, they're like that all the time on some kits, in fact  that would pass as quality for some manufacturers :P, nice work rich.

As Hewy says, those seems shouldn’t be an issue - I’ve seen bigger in Italeri truck kits! And a bit of putty should sort out shapes at the bottoms of the A-pillars?

 

Thst said, it is a bit refreshing for us mere mortals to know that even you sometimes make parts that don’t fit perfectly!!

Thanks All, You guys are great!

Welcome back Timmas.

 

Hey Everyone,

 

  The construction of the cab interior progresses.  I have built the interior door panels and installed the windscreen frame, along with some small items that needed tidying up.

 

  Once I got the windscreen installed and the gaps closed up, things were, not as stressful.  The bent and crooked cab walls are straightening up a bit and all looks to be a bit more encouraging.

Looks to be a good time to putty the seams and corners.

 

Time to build some doors.

You can see, this is just sheet styrene.  The handles are rod, and the, O.S.! handle, is bent tin solder.

 

Fresh back from the paint shop...

The photo seams to show much more red that green here.

More situations to arise, ensue, and overcome, I'm sure.  I'll be back later...Thanks All!

Rich, Another enjoyable catch up time, Thanks.

Maybe with all your problem solving skills you should move to Washington?

Regards

Pete

Hey Pete, I already live in Washington.  Just not the one that causes all the problems.

I used to live in Rickleton and I'm a Makem and I stayed in the W hotel opposite the Whitehouse the other week, so beat that!!
