Ok so made a start on this seems like a good fit so far, and I've got to say I really like the new instructions.

Some more work on the chassis.

It's a nicely detailed kit.

Hi all done a bit more to this super detailed chassis (Not done a truck before I'm amazed how much detail there is just in the chassis) I think I'm only about half way through it.
Image
I've started on the cab also. I used foil on the roof
Image
I think it looks too clean so I weathered it a bit and added some other details.

Hi all made a concerted effort on the chassis today, still a bit more to add (this really is a great kit I'm loving this as much as the London bus)

Done a bit more to this amazing kit, the fit of parts is perfect, they really have done a great job of this kit the parts are such a good fit I've used no glue on any of this part.

Hi all I love this kit, the fit is exceptionally good and the detail is great, again no glue 
Image
Image
I tried a failed experiment the instructions say aluminium for this part so I tried aluminium foil
Image
Yes I could try again but there are far more complex bits that have an aluminium background and this looks awful so I think I will use paint (although the ally doors will be simple enough with foil)
