Cracking on at your usual speed and impeccable build quality! I love the logo stickers on the mud flaps. I keep thinking of making a set of these for ours.

It was great to meet you at Scorton show at the weekend Peter & to get to put a face to the profile "dad needs a hobby"! I would have loved to have the time to stop and chat a little more about all things Toylander & hear your ideas for your no.10 build with A-frame hoist at the back, but the cries of "Landy, start your engine!" coming from our little landy was Alexander's cue for us set off again!

Hi Richard
it was great seeing you and your  miniature toy lander, It really is a credit to you. I cant wait for you to start a bigger one as I'm sure it will be a thing of beauty.

Hi Chaps
Al the wiring is now complete and tidy, I have also sprayed, colour sanded and machine buffed the seats, they are looking how I like them. Just the seat back to machine buff and fit

I have ordered 2 new 33ah batteries that should arrive today, the batteries it came with were draining a bit too fast for my liking. As I have to sell these little cars to make room for my next build its sensible to put a new set of batteries on for the new owner.

as always here is a pic

Hi Chaps
Well thats it all finished, Its turned out nice and was a straight forward build with no headaches.

Its been for a few decent drives now and performed excellent so its ready for its new home.

As always I have to thank my engineering guru Bill for making the rear wheel adaptors, motor brackets and teaching me how to make the bumper.

Also have to thank my mate Alan for his help, its great to have a bit of company in the workshop some evenings.

Final thanks goes to anyone thats been following my posts, I hope it inspires people to have a go..... If I can do it ANYONE can

as always here is pic.

Looks stunning as always. When you remove the berrings and caps for painting, how are they retained?

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

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