THANKS LJ’s for the assistance…...

Great job AL.

First attempt air something this complex…
- AussieLarks

Incredible how , as a novice, we tend to gravitate towards the more complex models… my first attempt at a model was the T & J Grader which I bought as it looked the most detailed/complex…

At least if you start on something complex, and finish it, all the rest will be like a stroll in a C19 free park.

Really nice project!!!
I just love the two tone colors and the grain really gives it a nice feel,
and can’t go with out pointing out your wonderful work on the wheels,
and the under neath is just as sweet as the top!!!
Can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

So nice, you may fur sure be proud on this one. Now you are hooked on model making? :)

To me it looks that the steering mechanism is working. Am I correct?
