My home made LT10 is taking shape.
The blue blister is on and the lime green nose cone but I'm not happy with it. I've cut the pen top too long. I may have to shorten it.
To cap off the ends of the body and the engine I looked everywhere in the house for two orange counters - you know, tiddlywinks, but to no avail. Red ones had to suffice but again I'm not overly happy with the colour change.
To get a feel for how the body and the engine will look here's the two parts balanced next to each other.
The engine isn't ribbed like the original so may not make the cut.
Finally, I've found some orange plastic off a Jaffa cale tube to experiment with in making what I reckon will be the hardest part, the wheeled chassis.
What do you think so far?
