Hi Chaps,
Thanks for your kind comments, this deep bronze green being such a dark colour has been a bit of a pig to get perfect. Iv resprayed the inside 3 times and both sides twice but it got there in the end.

No 11 build is going to be an exact replica (without the roof) of the picture attached but with a red winch that will be hand operated.

Ill be outsourcing the winch and A frame work to my amazing engineering friend Bill as he is a master at this kind of thing.

I've got some nice pictures of a yellow Series 1 recovery vehicle with a red crane on the back that tempted me.  That would be an interesting build - next time?

It is indeed up to your usual standard! I look forward to you building a recovery vehicle or maybe even a forward control one?

Regards,

GJC

Hi Chaps
Me again with my 10th build in 4 years. Im sorry I haven't done a diary build on this one but I seem to have been too busy with other things at the mo.

My 10th build was going to be a 2 tone recovery pick up with a red A frame on the back but unfortunately someone wanted me to build them a standard TL2 to my usually spec but in Deep Bronze Green, a colour I personally hate and also colour I said id never do. What can I say.... I caved.

If you have followed my other builds you will find this one exactly the same. Only difference being I have used the shop riders steering joints but just lengthened the bars between them. Makes for a smoother feel than the flat bar set up

I started it about 7 weeks ago and im about 2 weeks off completion

as always here is a pic

Materials / Re: In need of a good screw !

Hi
I found the screwfix gold screws have a quicker 'bite' than their silver screws in mdf so used them. It means that things are just a bit less likely to move about when assembling as the wet glue makes it a bit slippery.

Any woodscrew should do - it the glue that does most of the work

Did you source an ignition switch. For a simple on/off switch with a key look on ebay for an on/off key switch for a mobility scooter. They are not expensive.
On the other matter I have not brought anything from the new owners but that is because i'm not building a toylander, i'm building a lorry. However I did recently have dealings with Bill on a matter related to this forum and I found him a very agreeable and understanding person to deal with. Although this was all conducted via email but nevertheless I am confident he would be as good and helpful to deal with as Richard was. Perhaps if you have any further issues a polite email to explain the situation would help.
Regards
Barry

Damn I just asked this question on one of your other builds but what screws do you use to get a good firm hold in the MDF please.
Thanks

Hi... Can you tell me what screws you use. I want something that gives a good firm hold in the MDF.
Thanks
Barry
