Hi all,

It's taking a while, but I'm making some progress with FR Van 4, which now has look out duckets on both sides, and matchboarding on one...

I guess I'll carry on gradually working away at it over the winter with the aim of having it ready for spray painting when the weather warms up again in the spring...

Cheers,

Andrew.

Don't be harsh on yourself Rod, I'm sure Anne loves your work.
