OK, well I pushed so hard to get it running for Stretton, that I've had to step back and catch up with a few other things, so progress has been slow.  Stretton went well and the only issue I had was with the axle keys becoming loose and working along the keyway.  I just taped them in place on the day, but I'll look at that in due course.

I've started on the bodywork at the front, using MDF for the nose and some left over 0.9mm ali sheeting. I need to fill and sand the nose to it's final shape and then figure out the grille. For the main panels with simple curves, bonnet etc. I've bought some 1.2mm sheet, and I'll put off anything with compound curves until I feel inspired!
