Very nice, Harry! The amount of work and attention to detail you have into that building that kit is not unnoticed!

Thanks, Art. I did add a bit of additional detail and scratchbuilt bits and pieces, but even straight out of the box it's a nice model.

Outstanding model, and great subject matter.  I see you like the brand new look.  Man, I better start paying attention.  I don't know how I've missed so many of your wonderful builds, Harry.

I really like how you educate us on the subject you have built,  Make's your work that much better in my eye's.  All the various medium's used result in a very realistic model, you don't seem to be afraid to work with other material's beside's styrene.    When I saw the hand rail's I said no way he bent them, but I was wrong......that to me look's extremely difficult.  Well done Harry.

You're right, getting the curved handrails to the exact right shape wasn't easy. Probably the single hardest step of the whole building process.

That's truly amazing!  Great model and in our favorite scale too.  Best I've seen is the old AIrfix 1/32 scale kit. I had it as a kid and never got it together. I have an unbuilt one today that someday I'll take a shot at!

Here are some shots of the 1/32 kit. Looks like it can be built into a nice model.

If you need a bit more realistic tyres the tyres from the Monogram truck is a perfect fit.

Thanks. I saved those as reference photos.  I saw one built at NNL East one year.  I had that kit as a kid and never quite got it together, so it's on my bucket list.

Looks museum quality to me! A subject not often seen with so much detail it can be studied for hours. Excellent build.
