Make sure you've logged in to that page/site. Even though you are logged on at Automodeler or Armorama, et cetera, you may not be logged on at Kitmaker Gallery.

Hello all. I cannot seem to upload my photos into the GB gallery. What Am I doing wrong? When I try the result says that I do not have permission to upload photos. Please help before the end of the build.

Rob, that's gorgeous! Impressive looks! What can I say?! You should be punching the air with joy! (and kick me too for being so "lazy"!)

Cheers!

Thanks guys!

I think I am just going to leave it as is, adding the cab was a pain because I removed all the snap together bits and filled the holes.

Cheers Rob.

Nicely done, Rob. I like the "rubber" on the tanks, your engine looks great. Well done. Are you going to "chrome" the bands that go around the air cleaner?

Looking nice, Rob. It's hard to tell from the photo, but your rear tired need to be on the outside of the lip on the wheels. Looks like they are on the inside.

Jim



Thanks Jim!

DOH!

Cheers Rob.

Darrell,

I use drill bits to hollow out pipes if I don't make new ones from copper/brass/aluminum tubing. I bought a set of 100+ bits years ago - Letter, numbered, fractional. Best set I've ever had for modeling as it inevitably will have the size I need. LOL, I only use them for modeling as they're not that great for anything else (poor steel compared to good set from the hardware store).

I like what you did with the exhaust tips Darrell! Similar to a Deora I did a long time ago.

Nice lookin' motor Rob.

Mike



Thanks Mike. Not having the skill to hollow out tubing or having brass tube I used the insulation cover from Sta-kon wire connectors. The exhaust piping is made from solid solder

Well Done Darrel!

The engine is ready to go in and a pic of the air suspension I'm making for another project.

Cheers Rob.

UPDATE
I found some time today to do a little something to my tractor. Not much, but enough to keep it going.

I added the cabin orange lights and the "trumpets":


Some scratch build is also requested, because the mud guards from the kit are not useable. The "holes" will be reflectors and the "hinges" are recycled from left-overs of Zvezda's Sd.Kfz. 251/1 Ausf.B Stuka zu Fuss which I completed a century ago:


I'm trying to get this build done in within a week time, but I guess you've heard that already

Cheers!
Gabriel
