I'm among the rest of the group who really likes this rig.

Is this the same kit Revell of Germany released several years back? 

I'll be following along Mark.

I just picked up two of these. Probably my favorite cabover to drive. One in the Rose Way inc. scheme in my future.

I got the frame started a lot of clean up and filling , I filled in all extra holes that won't used , I added fuel tank brackets from an Aerodyne kit , I also added some nut and bolt detail.

This is March update, I got the engine block together I noticed on the back of the front cover there is area that needs filled in . 

I also got some air line ran. The plastic tie rod is pretty flimsy so I replaced it with brass tubing .

Mark, your detail work is very impressive! If I may ask, did you scratch build or purchase the air line "junction blocks"?

Thanks guys for the comments 

Dennis I scratch built them , after looking at some of the other builders work I thought would give it a try .

I just used some scrap square stock , some of the model sprue for the round pieces ,then Meng  nuts & bolts , the round collars are Meng heck bolts drilled out .
