Dave,

Very nice build. I like the splash of mud on the vehicle. It's a little nice kit. I have that one as well. I had a difficulty on lock the RR in the clamp when I built it. Finally, I put it into an unlock position. It seems that yours holding it locked tight. I must did something wrong.

Had the same problem, I just thinned it down a little using a round file, and clamped it closed using a small set of crossing tweezers as the glue set.

Nice job editing the photos Bill, (I know it drove you crazy!) made me look like I actually can use a camera.

My pleasure Dave, thanks for taking the time to shoot them and your patience with the email attachment limitations.

Other thank a little tweaking of the clamp, I don't remember any other fit problems.
Just watch out for the plastic eating tires.
Trakz makes a replacement resin set.

Thanks guys.

Pat I used my old camera for those photos:


As I'm still trying to learn and figure out my new camera:


I'll be using the old one for taking to work, and for shots there etc as it's small, and easy to carry in my lunch box, the new one will be used for studio work at home and going to shows.

Sample of it's optical zoom: Little Lee keeping an eye on things across the room, about 22 foot.


Should work good at the shore also!!!
