    That is looking real sweet Steve. I don’t suppose its going to float too by any chance? I suppose it could happen if you fill all the voids with expanding foam once your finished. Would make a great pic or vid, coming out o f the sea through the waves lol.[/quote

    Unsure on the floating bit yet ,it has crossed my mind :unsure: .Still waiting drive bits yet so will wait till its running before stuffing it with foam .

    Thanks for the link Pete was looking for that might get me a tin

    Taking shape very nicely steve. It looks nice in white as it is, wonder how it would look in arctic CAMo like the mt we used in Canada in the 80’s. ill look and see if I can find any pics of it. We didn’t have stolWart’s there though as far as I remember but the CAMo was white beige and black if I remember rightly may have had some grey in too.

    Managed to grab a few hours on this today got the transmission in, and the 2 steering servos and shift servo mounted .With a bit of luck I should have this chassis running in the next week or two..
    getting busy in there and another drive shaft to link the front and middle transfer cases .

    014_zpsffd92548.jpg
    a little tight with some of the drive shafts but all is well .

    fitted some electrics and it now runs. speed is about 7mph just right not tried the other gear as of yet, need to get the shift servo fixed up. 013_zps6d74c758.jpg

    Front end is a bit light with motor and gear box at rear , nothing a bit of lead wont fix to balance it out :) .
