For tools, all I had was my Leatherman Squirt - a mini multi-tool on my keyring - which would give me a blade, a file and scissors.
The gauntlet was laid and the box was promptly opened... GAWWWWD, what a dreadful kit! Honestly, I'm sure each individual part was actually allergic to every other one, especially the one it was supposed to attach to!
Anyway, as it happens, I failed to complete the kit by nightfall - I called it a day at 23:15 due to failing light. BUT, we didn't have to be off the site until noon, so I got stuck back in at 08:04 and at 11:15 was calling... 'it' done. Finito. Finished.
The YouTube build - and I use that word loosely - video can be seen here
It looked innocent enough...!
The paint didn't like the plastic.
There were no discernible frame lines on the coke-bottle canopy bar some faint wispy marks, so I decided to make some masks with duct tape!
Did it work...? No. Not really, so I sharpened some twigs and scratched the paint off instead. Results...? Ok. Well, ok for being in a tent.
The, erm, 'sub-assemblies'...!
As of 11:15 the following morning...
