That's lovely, Jim, must've taken you years- I'm impressed by the chamfered flanges on the fins and the ornamental Rococo style wheel nuts!!!!!

Cracking model Jim. How long did that little beauty take you?

Noel, It took about 4 weeks (on and off). I`m quite pleased with it because it began life as a box trailer and I dismantled it, cut it up and copied one of Berry`s trucks that I had seen in Leyland.
( I even roped (pardon the pun)my wife in to machine edge the load cover sheets).

Thanks for the kind remarks Noel. I too think it looks superb ([:I] says he - modestly).
I called this thread, `last model of the winter`, but having bought three on ebay in the last 10 days, I`m iching to get at them.
As I stated before, I bought all my kits on Strand Road, but those on e-bay are brand new and in most cases have cost me less than half the recommended price.
