Hi All!

Bought this kit a few months ago and decided to start to build it.  If anybody has experience with this kit, I'd like to hear from you.

It's probably just me, but I find the instructions very confusing.  Has anybody ever done a thread on this build?

Cheers,:bang:

Gord

I haven't built that car but have built a number of La Belle's kits including Kit #12, a open platform combine.
The most difficult part is shaping the roof. Just that your time and study the text, diagrams and parts before proceeding.

If you are really stuck post some pictures of the parts with questions and some one here should be able to help out.

Thanks for the feedback. I built a combine of theirs about 40 years ago and did a nice job of it, but have been out of the hobby for almost that long, I'm just coming back. As I recall, the roof was easy for me.

Not one to take any chances now, I had them shape the roof on this kit for me for an extra fee. If I had a camera or a cell phone, I'd take some pics, but I don't unfortunately.

Cheers,

Gord
