    Hello

    Spare wheel cage finished.
    It was proved to me again that designer didn't give a thought about the modeler. Just draw and fold. How to assemble - not his problem.
    I noticed that cage is positioned not by center. This is because of towing cable mechanism that placed on left.
    But when i placed cargo box with cage on the frame, side of the cage stuck in the mechanism. I was in need to cut it to insert it right... Annoying

    bugs:
    part 85w - wrong length
    glue place for part 86t is wrong

    Thanks guys

    Last details of the model itself
    Assembled and glued in place: front lights, backlights, extinguishers, mirror and licence plates.
    Formally the model is almost ready, but there's still waiting a pile of technician instruments, spare parts, cans, gas reservoirs, barrels and other stuff
    still a lot of parts missing, mistakes in drawings, mistakes in numeration and patterns


    bugs:
    details 105d, 107c, 108c, 108d - missing, made by myself
    detail 108b to small in diameter after it was fold (painted white places on the basis)

    Wrenches of different sizes, disks, plates, rasps, screwdrivers, hammers, bolts, saws, hand drills, pliers, calipers, banks with grease, cans with oil, boxes for tools, jacks, stands for jacks, cable reels...
    It's all i managed to do so far
    There will be more

    That's all folks! ©
    There was a little delay with final pictures but
    I can say for sure - the model is finished!

    What we had:
    Two years and 4 month of slow building with brakes here and there
    30 pages under the scissors (almost)
    7240 parts (almost)
    About 90-100 errors (some of them very rough)
    About 120-140 missing parts (probably one page was forgotten in print)

    In conclusion:
    The model very impressing when finished, with a lot of details and a lot of optional instruments
    Thank you for watching, encouraging and criticizing
    I probably wouldn't finish this model without your support

    And final photos!

    Made aquarium from Plexiglas
    The top is removable
    On the bottom I've glued mirror, so you can put the model on top of the aquarium and see all that beneath in the mirror

    :wave:Hello my friend, wow:thumb:. I am so pleased with how this turned out for you, and after seeing you do what many have said could not be done:cry:. Well you have proved them wrong and produced a show stopper of a build. I will use this thread many times as I too try to build in the future. Thanks for sharing this build.:cool:
