TOPIC: WWI British Type B Lorry

WWI British Type B Lorry 15 Mar 2020 16:31 #1

As I finish up the SA-5 I decided to do the new Miniart Type B Lorry. First because its so cool and secondly so I can see trouble areas before I do the bus. Well the engine is almost done.Goes together so well. The have PE spark plug connections but the distributor just has some small pegs to glue the wire to. So I drilled them out and used .6mm albion tube. Hopefully I can get some pics later on when I go to do some more fiddly stuff on the SA-5.

Got the frame put together. I bought some steal blocks so I can align these multi part frames easier and some squares and when I checked this morning it was true so I'm happy. Engine painted and now I need to paint the heads and spark plugs and then weather some. I used .6mm brass tube in the distributor where the ignition leads will fit.

Also have one side of the launcher for the SA-5 finished. Man those knobs are tiny and fiddly.

Thanks. Mike just sent me a pic so I can finish the heads this afternoon. Great detail pic. Lost an exhaust and wrote to Miniart last night to buy a sprue. They are sending me one. Best customer service I have ever seen.

It's not like you have a shortage of experience with icicles...

Got some more work done but basement is cold so did not stay long. Radiator is almost done. just pe left. Frame is close to done. Almost ready to paint it and install the engine. Box is done and cab is close to done. Coming along nicely. No pics but if you look at the SA-5 build you can see the parts in the background.
