It is said to be, er, challenging. 

 

You might already have seen this absolutely splendid example which went on display a couple of weeks ago:

Might be worth contacting them and asking to be put in touch with whoever did that one, because he's probably the best Sanger Hamilcar builder in the world, and certainly the  one with the most current experience!

After some looking at the model the first observation is that the u/c is early type disposible wheels whereas in Planet resin kit the ferry-like type applied later in all Hamilcars is done. This is not a big problen to do it from scratch. Anyway a good drawing to know all details not provided in kit are required for sure...
