Hi all made a concerted effort on the chassis today, still a bit more to add (this really is a great kit I'm loving this as much as the London bus)

Loads of detail in the Fire Engine. Nice work.

This kit really does look very good, KP and is building into a great model.

Done a bit more to this amazing kit, the fit of parts is perfect, they really have done a great job of this kit the parts are such a good fit I've used no glue on any of this part.

Great progress, KP. IMHO Revell produces great value for money kits that build up very well, I like their stuff.

More great detail from this Revell kit, KP. I'm sure this is going to look the business when it's done.

Hi all I love this kit, the fit is exceptionally good and the detail is great, again no glue 
Image
Image
I tried a failed experiment the instructions say aluminium for this part so I tried aluminium foil
Image
Yes I could try again but there are far more complex bits that have an aluminium background and this looks awful so I think I will use paint (although the ally doors will be simple enough with foil)

That is a great fitting kit, KP! Yes, I'd use ally paint. I tried foiling once using kitchen baking foil and it wasn't a great success!

doing a very good job with this model it looks a realy good kit, have you thought of using bare metal foil, it is good stuff and ii is self adhesive just need cotton buds to get it to conform to all the curves and it shows all detail
