    Turns out my printer was low on magenta, how did you know Zathros? I have some more pictures of the build. Notice that on part 34a the tabs are not symmetrical side to side. Not an issue, just note before you cut.

    Not Zathros, is Draal, and Great Machines, he reaches far out, sees Boo Boo, sees printer, sees the One! :twisted:

    So far, so good.
    At 1:18 scale, that is going to be one big chariot.
    Who do you have to operate it (once it is finisned, that is)?

    I love big models, personally. This is going to be sweet!

    Well, there is Adama, and then I have a couple of custom colonial warriors.. Of course I learned that when repainting action figures, use acrylic, not enamel paints. Enamel paints don't dry. I guess my warriors are wet behind the ears :mrgreen:

    I should have more pictures to post tomorrow.

    The forthcoming pictures are still forthcoming. Cutting all the road wheels parts took longer then I thought....

    Well, here are six of the fifthcoming photos. This series is the road wheel build. I scored the tabs, then cut the parts out. Then roll around a form, glue. Fold the scored tabs then color the edges (barrels and caps). Glue end cap, allow to dry, glue other cap, dry. Then glue to part 34. Next is the track....

    It looks like it is coming together quite nicely.
    The most tedious part has still yet to come you on this build, THE TREADS!

    Keep up the great work.

    Thank you! The treads of the Chariot are not cleated, so it should build much easier then the Landram :mrgreen:

    :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:!!!!!!

    (To RB: Really, this is the way the treads look like. Unlike the Landram the chariot comes from tread heaven!!)

    ASC, the build looks fantastic! I noticed the glue tab issue but thought it wouldn't be a big problem. Please continue!

    However, I noticed that an empty cargo area does not look that appealing. So I have made a little add-on: The energizer. :twisted:

    The energizer looks like it will make a good addition to the kit as a whole.
    I am looking forward to adding this to my collection.

    That looks just like Siress Belloby's energizer! very nice! I had some ideas about filling the bed of the Chariot. Thank you again, RF!

    I thought Crazy glue (cyanoacrylate) was toxic? Everyone seems scared of the stuff nowadays.

    My boss got a chunk of her ear cut during a haircut, and the emergency room used some kind of egg-protein based superglue.

    This may not be the best way to build these tracks, but it's what I did on this side. I'll try something slightly different on the other side, but that must wait for tomorrow.
