        have drilled out the holes for the rivets using a 1.5 mll drill and removed the rivets from the sprue and sanded of the burrs just have to be careful as these little rivets are tiny and could quite easily be lost.

          rivets fitted.
          can you only post one picture at a time or is there a option to post more?.

              Nice work with the Churchill, mate. The suspension looks like it needs careful work on it, do you have to compress the springs down much?

              As for photos, you can place up to 12 pics in any single post... I think Geek44 also had trouble loading his pics here aswell, he loads it the same way you do.

              Cheers mate, good work.

                Nice work so far Micky. I haven't even pulled the sprue sheets out of the box yet. I will forever be a procrastinator.

                  good progress mate the churchill i am doing is kingforce work on the sponsons is progressing the road wheel support rails are dificult to build two methods out there on how to .... place one rail side making sure it is straight and even, glue in place with cyo glue next place the other rail and line up place your first spring paddel at the first position line up the susspention rails hold in place and superglue, now go to the other end and do the same.Now your anckor for the construction is set the rail is normally warped a bit so as you place each individual spring paddel glue together use elastic bandes to hold each step 10 minites... the other method construct the rails insert the paddel springswhile you hold both rails b e carefull as when the parts line up you feel it click make sure you have thin acetae glue for this and glue in place hold for 2 min walk away let dry 30 min move to the next as the suspention is lose fitting the next paddel will slip in no problem.. personal observation long locating pins on 1 rail would fix this and make for a more acurate allignment ,a perfect job in this phase is difficult have seen many built not one perfect

                    AB those suspension legs do not need any pressure at all this part is easy to put together they just give you enough grip to stop them 'flying off' when you mate the two halfs together, reguarding posting pictures is there a thread on here showing multiple picture posting?.

                    triggerjockey, i can hang back with this build if you want me to? or i will only post pics when you are at the same stage it's up to you, im easy on this.

                      M.C. did you take pics showing how you went about doing these rails, i have glued both sets of paddles already on to the rails, as shown in the instructions guide, this has to be the hardest part of this build, what was needed was a deeper groove on one of the mating sides this would have made life a lot easier. but that is a good idea of yours.

                        Go ahead with your build. I am farther behind with some current projects that I need to get more work done on. My Churchill will just have to wait. Thanks though.
