I started this around 3 weeks ago after the last of the 5 kits arrived, a lot less work than the traction trailer but nevertheless an enjoyable project with very satisfying results as you will see.
The usual start after a couple of hours chamfering edges then sandblasting.

Round 3 of the big cleanup I think the neighbours must be getting fed up with the sound of the grinder now.

Well that was all the metal work with the exception of the hub caps but that's another story.
So it was on to something a bit more wooden and a little more neighbour friendly.
Fantastic bit of woodwork I did not need to ease any of the joints as they all went together first time no problems.

The floor 30 slats with 8 edges each in need of a radius done with the router then all drilled and countersunk.
