Room under the bonnet for a tiny magnet if required?
Good thinking!

I've got some, somewhere, so will bear that in mind as the build progresses...

Morning all!

Here's the latest progress on the diesel, with some filling, sanding, and priming done, and some more to come. I think I've got away with my "cut and shut" operation to shorten the body...

I rather like the yellow primer livery!

Once it's all tidied up I think I'll put it away for a while and carry on with some other projects, then add the details over the winter and paint in the spring - although there's a good chance I'll change my mind!

Cheers,

Andrew

I can't see any evidence of the cutting and shutting and it looks like a 30HP Kerr Stuart. You've done pretty well I think.


I'm sorry, but I'm a Melburnian and with it painted yellow, it inescapably reminds me of the 'Yellow Peril'......... 8)

Given that I had to turn the chassis round to get the body to fit, there's probably an "Edam/Made backwards" joke in there somewhere, but I don't think I'll go looking for it...

A brief update, and probably the last for a month or two, because I've put the KS body aside to carry on with some other projects...

I filled another couple of areas, sanded again and primed once more, this time in grey. The finished thing will probably be grey, so it's quite nice to see roughly what it will look like...

I'll add detail over the winter and add the final coats of paint in the spring. For now though, I've reassembled the RH Hercules that will be donating its chassis to the newcomer...

Here they are together yesterday afternoon...
