Hi guys, haven’t been on here for ages and hope all are good and well. I’m still working on the Challenger and opened up more hatches and now hinged the front guards and I’m really pleased so far....more kit bags and bits been added as well as number plates....need to still get the Jerry cans to make the cage for them on the rear panel.....more kit on its way......and new track ends are the last thing now for more reliable running........
She’s getting there lol

Thanks for that Mark, on reflection, when you bought it, was it a moment of clarity or insanity?
I’d love one
Cheers
