Structural work is largely complete on the Jumbo now and attention turns to the cosmetic. The last two evenings have been spent applying Archers rivets in the approximate arrangement seen on these machines. The vac pipes have been fitted and numbers/crests applied. I have also glued paper punch bosses onto the axle nuts which vastly improves the appearance along with some paint applied.
The real magic is yet to come as I wield the airbrush and other media to bring this wee beastie to life proper over the next few days.
Stay tuned!
