    Also sorted out a few details. Hopefully a got representation on the star on the 'Bonnet' and flanks.

    I haven't got round to buying the DVD and I probably should, but is there any writting in the white panel at the base. I can't see any in the pictures, but then I don't see the point of the panel. In truth I hope there isn't.

    If I saw one of these in my mirrors, I'd definietly get out of the way.

    What about "My other car is a Landmaster"

    I've loved the Landmaster since I saw it on first run! Can't wait for the finished project... because I wants one, My Precious!

    Are you still sticking with saying its in 1:43 scale? I would end up rescaling it for my purposes at 1:60 for my gaming/diorama scenarios. Yeah, I know smaller and harder...

    I'm working on it, but taking much longer than even I expected.

    However some up dates.
    Please ignore the gaps, in my eagerness to build I cut all the tabs off :cry:

    Watching and waiting

    Yes, I'm looking forward to it as well.

    I've been admiring all the dimensioning work that went into this.

    Patience my lovelies, it's coming.

    No really, thanks for the words of encouragement. it does give me a needed kick up the backside. Short on time as we all are.

    I'm trying to mangle together the missle/rocket launcher on the roof. I'm finding it hard to get scaled right to the rest. I haven't really get anything clear to get the dimensions from. I've made a couple; and both don't quite look right. Probably just been ultra picky, but it has to look right.

    Other than that more or less done. Just need to do a final test build of everything (and a bit more tweaking) I should change my name to Tweaky. :thumb:

    A bit of work in progress (just to show some)

    No clear pictures or dimensions, compounded by the fact I don't know what I'm doing, so it's all a bit trial and error at the moment. Launcher tubes look about right to me, but the support is too tall and needs to angled more.
