    This is the latest kit from Fred, a glorious one piece body / underframe casting and a selection of supporting parts.

    It all comes in a box capable of storing the finished model

    The instructions are Fred's favoured format, text plus hand drawn diagrams

    Hellooo!

    Anyone around?

    Steve, just refresh my memory before I b*gger something else up, can you remember whether you can fold Fred's etched to 90 degrees or do you have to plough the half etch out first?

    A bit of ploughing wouldn't go amiss I think:rolleyes:, but it has to nonetheless be said that Fred's wagon cast is a beautifully complete piece of work:bowdown:

    Sorry, back to my thread:oops:

    Given the liquid Easter sunshine I've just started prepping the kit....

    Simon,

    From memory I've always just folded Fred's etches and not had any problems, but plough away if you feel the need!

    No need for ploughing, they fold up really nicely:)

    I do hope Steve finds this information useful:p

    Off to mess something else up now....
