So things have moved on a little

Shells all done

70& of panels + parts all painted ( exstatic about the paint quality ... I think so far I've pulled the prep out the bag on this one .... and Anthony ( the painter has smashed it out the park )

added a few extras as they come up at the right price so how could I say no ...


Its like all my bucket list boxes are getting ticked on this one so far


Enjoy the pics ....


Its PAN BUILD TIME :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
