Now Now Dean no need to spit your dummy out just because Middlesborough lost 3-0 to Blackpool last night. Give poor old Strachan a chance he's new to Teeside and maybe does'nt understand you have to win all the games. New dummy in post to you. Mike

almost there now Cool

the outer hub covers are done...



and the oiler tubes...



one of the last things to do is the oil hole in the hub, drilled at an angle...





so the oiler tube sticks forward between two of the spokes...



and the moment you've all been waiting for, one of our "control" wheels full assembled...





the vulcanised tyre...



and a close up of the oiler tube...



just waiting for the half-nuts on the lathe now, and then it's boxing things up next week, you should get your kits soon cheers

Craig,

It depends what you mean by "paying", I'm financing it but my god am I "paying" for it!! You wouldnt believe the various underhanded ploys I have used to convince those who need convincing what an investment it is, or how in a round about way I am "saving" money which will later be reliquished with the sale of the agricultural to put to better use. Embarassed

However I should point out that I am one of the lucky few who will be building this magnificent machine and I cant wait for the day it pulls off the drive under its own steam.

A big congratulations to all at STW for the first true model from their stock. cheers cheers cheers

Kevyn.

having to pay for your own pressie affraid

that's almost as bad as buying the wife a hoover for x-mas Laughing Laughing Wink

i understand the finished models are worth far more than what you pay for the kits so I'm sure you won't be out of pocket long term Cool
