Hello Dick

Do it.
It is not so difficult how it seems. This is my first complete scratch building. Before that i scratched only Details like banner or wood parts.
It takes a lot of time to check the drawings with the Richmodel
and original Pictures because there are many discrepancy between them .
I spend now 80 hours on it and at the end the RSO becomes an trailer from Operation Todt.
I hope you guys will like it when its done.

Stunning work Norman - every aspect of this scratchbuilt model looks perfectly realised to me. I would love to tackle a 1/16 scratch myself, so far I have only ventured as far as 1/24! Your fantastic model is not helping me resist the temptation!

Excellent!

Ho lee cow!

Your work is very, very impressive.
I would really love to see you blog exactly how you made your new cab. Heck, I'm sure we'd all like to see how you did it!
