Felt like my hand was good enough to start work on this again.
Worked all day making jigs so i could make the doors and the back of the cab.
Started out ok but as soon as i tried my new router bit it broke.

That would be a real challenge for me to make all those parts being so small and detailed. Really looking good.

Using a lighter in your pictures to show scale eh? I think I've seen that somewhere before. LOL. Great work. It's coming along nicely.
