Firstly wheels of a different sort,I have arthritis in my spine and it has been 10/10 on a pain level the last week and even getting into the chair has caused me grief.

Got the wheels sprayed and Molotowed..

Got the engines assembled and ohhh...found something to moan about with the Revell bronco,yes I have nothing to moan about so am moaning about that!

Hmmmmmmm a slight problem,the front of the shell has warped due to my cutting'It is (mis)behaving just like a real truck now,so I have two choices...
1.Leave it as it is,not a road worthy vehicle..
2.Try to correct the warpage - re secure the core support should do the trick.
