Looking good.  I have this kit in the stash but find it a little intimidating at the moment.  Will be watching with great interest!

Wow that's a big one.  Does it come with the rail/track/bed?  Pic could be from 1984 with all the small testors paints and the orange testors tube glue.  Dig your glue holder BTW Stick out tongue

Thanks,

John

I agree, it's intimidating when you open the box and look at the instruction book.  Thair are more parts in "one" rail car-truck, then in the gun barrole and chasie combined.  That's why I did the gun barrole-first.  The chasie secound, and -then-whent back to the first page of instructions, and started the rail bed.  I lined the barrole with one section of aluminum tubeing, sleaved in evergreen tubeing, from muzel to breach.  Then led waights to the breach to compensate for the waight of the barrol---did'nt quite ballance, but the sholder pivets are tight enuf to make up the difference.

Yes-keavdog.  It comes with two chosiss.  Straight-like I'm using " for lack of display space", or an L track layout- for diarama.

Gotta watch this. I built Annie a few years back when it came back in stock.
