BREAKDOWN TRAIN - PART #3

This project is turning in to a lobour of love.  What looked relatively simple is testing my modelling skills to the limit!

Today's update simply shows the completed match truck.  You would have thought this was easy but there were issues with the wheels as they are plastic and keep moving on the metal axles (I assume these were standard in Germany a few years ago?).  Eventually I managed to get the back in the chassis and adjust the back to back measurement.

There was also a problem in refitting the jib cradle as it is a very snug on the sides.  Could this have been down to the paint?  Anyway, I gently filed the sides and opened out the locating hole until everything went together.  A wee spot of Superglue holds everything in place.

Many thanks
