Overall view of chassis. Looking pretty good and well detailed. 9 volt transistor battery to show huge size of this model!

Overall right hand view. I should have issue 35 the drivers floor but the shop has missplaced it. Have been told it is around and to collect it later.

Can't yet carry on with the build as I'm still waiting for issue 35 the drivers floor! If I don't get it soon I will have to buy one on ebay for twice the cost!

The Routemaster I drove had a rubber sleeve on the hand brake plus the ratchet was chrome or silver so I've painted them. Looks much better.

Underside view. Put a very small amount of watch makers oil on steering shaft and gears just to free it up.

Brake peddle fitted. Its a bit flimsy and fiddly to fit. As I'm building this for some one else I'm leaving as is. If it was mine I would mould one out of cast metal as its stronger.
