I disagree, photos rarely lie, and it looks good to me...

Parts 82 Cab fenders

The back side of the cab fenders are missing. I am thinking there is actually an entire page of parts missing from this publication (more evidence to follow). I copied the top sides and used the copies as the undersides as well to get the proper thickness and rigidity.

Then I installed the fenders and the transition step pieces between the front wheel fenders a the cab fenders. As expected, fit was not very good.

The next step calls out the buildup and installation of the pioneer tools. The last picture shows all the parts provided. The parts called out, however, range from 111a through 111m and 112a through 112j.

Fighting with the cab assembly and the prospect of all this scratchbuilding/parts creation has drained my enthusiasm for this build. I need to refocus once again and build something else for a bit.

My complements go out to you Greg. Building those fenders with all their compound curves look challenging enough even on a good day but then add in the fact that half of the parts don't even exist, that's a whole new level of crazy. Congrats on making it this far.
BTW... do you think the missing page of parts might be inserted as a supplement of sorts in with the trailer kit? just a thought.

I looked and it ain't there. Good thought though. Bolt cutters I'll get from the GPM panzer III. Shovels, pick, and hatchets I can deal with. I just do not know what direction to go for the large timber saw.

It would be nice if Angraf made an errata sheet available with the missing parts. I guess I can dream about it....

Yep I saw that too. Thankfully only a few parts on there are not symmetrical...
