Kits 4B & 5 arrived on October 20, 2005.
I checked my parts inventory and reviewed the instructions.
The front hubs and wheel/tire assemblies went together in no
time. Set the toe-in alignment and set the chassis on the ground.
Since Modelworks gave a warning that the springs may change,
I just set the springs on their perches and took some pictures.
These two kits are not very challenging and not much detailing
As I stand back and take in my creation, and of course
push it around the shop to test the steering and differential,
I'm now getting impatient for the next installment
There is now a Modelworks builder forum, designed and
administered by Julia, from S.E. England. She is building the
Burrell Traction model, but has set the forum up for all the
Modelworks kits. I would like to see all of the Likamobile builders
attend this site and introduce themselves and share their build
experiences. The web address is: http//modelworksug.proboards58.com/
the next installment, Happy Building.
