Getting somewhere now , this is going to be one big chunk of yellow d'oh!
Gregg , Cheers mate , I find the soldering part easy , trying to hold some of the bits in place to solder them has seen me invent some new words on a regular basis.....I've found getting the wire between a steel plate with small magnets on top to hold it down can help alot .
Steve , make me a ridiculous offer and i'll sell you all my custom stuff , it'll need to be a good offer to have to go thru the pain of replacing them thou...... Smile

Marty the word is priceless, I have an idea, just an idea of how much time you invest in creating your masterpieces. Since I have been collecting I have never sold my non custom models, never mind my own customs which are not up to your caliber, so I do know how you feel from that standpoint. I was just wondering if you would put them in an auction because I think you would be surprised at what collectors would shell out to have one of your customs on their shelf. Marty if I had Q’s money, or even if he would let me pick hundreds off his acres of greenback trees, I would most certainly make you a ridiculous offer for some of your goodies. Keep up the good work, can’t wait to see that yellow monster completed.

Thanks guy's , I appreciate the comments . It took a while but I got there in the end .
Robert - winches came from "The Model Mechanic" on Shapeways , it came with a guard but I chose not to use it .
