Update 31.03.23 the TRAX are on! Now wait 24 hours or so for the glue to set, then measure up some evergreen card to make front uprights and ski's.

Hi!

      I do have a question. Where do you get those Trax?

Hi to you, I bought them from Shapeways, they pull together small issue 3D makers and sell their products for them. As they are small producers the products they make are not cheap! But are very well made and detailed.

Nearly!

Now should I paint it colour(s) or leave it workshop grey?

That looks awesome Pat!!! 

If it's going though snow I think I'd paint it high-visibility orange or something like that though!

To go from the build in a grey undercoat pop off the chassis and add the red set of clip on panels!

Thanks Gamera, I hope you are able to take some medication against the pollen.
