Parts 2 through 4, the remaining parts of the rear blade assembly. All are in paint or through paint and waiting for final assembly.

Once I am on that stage, I will show the blade assembled and in transport position before placing it in its intended position for display.

Also, while there are multitudes of additional accessories provided, I will only build a few more before this part of the project is finished.

It is not cheap and I had to buy all but 1 bit separately.

However It is my most used "specialty" tool and I would feel lost without it.

Anything above 5 mm I cut with a knife (inner diameters) or scissors (outer diameters). I have had very poor luck with circle cutters so they barely get used.

I have started my adventure building the trailer. Nothing glued yet but plenty of planning on my part. I am hoping this part of the build is a little less intense than the FAMO. Here's the cover and part 1 components.

Woohoo! Into the home stretch. I'll be watching on as always and am looking forward to seeing the 3 pieces together.

You and me both! I would love to start a new and different long term project, or at least finish a bunch of shorter term ones ....

Front bogie Part number 1

Most of the parts fit OK. I cut 1K in to multiple pieces and it was a good thing I did. Some parts were just too long and needed trimmed.

On the bright side... Too long is always better than too short.
