It's a good looking kit and it's HEAVY! I got the same one with the additional US conversion kit that adds the LH steering and dashboard, new front air inlets and side skirts. This is a build to watch!

Hi jacobus,

this is a great transkit, I have built and finished one, and started a second.... It looks to me you have made a mistake in the positioning of the front axle. With the FLD chassis, remove the 'blue' extensions and measure 36mm from front of chassis to the centre of the steer axle, (or 40mm with the supplied bumper mounts installed).

No problem jacobus, just trying to help.

 

Another tip - You may notice I have assembled the steering tie-rod to the front of the axle, depending on what engine you use it may foul on the oil sump, If you intend to display with the cab tilted, no engine parts can sit more than 20mm above the top chassis rail before hitting on the cab floor.

So Jacobus, you're making progress on this, nice! This is going to look good in that shade of blue. If I may make a suggestion for the interior, I would go with a primer grey. I'm sure it's going to be a nice looking replica.

Kelvin, if you have other tips and tricks up your sleeve like you have shown for the Argosy please let us know! Thanks!
