This thing's driving me nuts!

Has anyone built this kit and could/would you please post pictures of all 4 sides of it.

The instructions are really less than basic.

Thanks

Mike

Howdy Mike...I just "Googled" J V Models burnt river mine and got photos of the model and various threads that deal with the kit. I'm too much a doofus to post the link here but you can certainly find it. Good luck, it appears to be a cool mine structure.

Woodie

I've done the Google search already and yes they have some decent angled pictures,
nothing from the back which I could use without guessing.

Nice kit yes, but short on construction pictures.

Thanks for the input!

Hi Michael  :wave:



The kit does look pretty interesting ...  L:

... a good looking & space-saving mine, by the looks of things.  :thumb:



It would be GREAT to see some pix. of your build as it comes together.  :bg:

I thought I'd Post a couple of photos I found on Google Images of the model & parts.  :)





& what's in the box ?  ???






:cool:

Thats the one. The google search gave me the same results. I would have liked pics of the sides and back. Guess i just kind of went with it and built/rebuilt as i went. I'll try getting new pics resized and post them.  Next kit is the"lucky mine" from classic miniatures. ThanksMike

Thank you for the kind words! Adding some details to it now so more to come. The quote about instructions is spot on!

" The quote about instructions is spot on! "



Yeah ... Canadian Kens 'signature' is pretty funny !  :P  :)



I think Jose has said on more than 1 occasion ...

... the first thing to do when opening the kit box ...

... is to throw 'The Instructions' in the bin !  :shocked:



Just DON'T do it for a 'MiniArt' Caterpillar D7 kit !  ;)



Nice work getting the pix. up Michael.  :thumb:
