Looks great from here Gibbs. Can't wait to follow this thread. The Puma is a great subject. Sure has a lot of wheels on those sprues. Looks like at least two sets. What gives?
Every part a masterpiece.

Each wheel is in two parts that you have to join together

Having looked at the wheels mentioned, I noted what appears to be a file set next to the kit parts? would like to hear a little about those.

These are the files in the picture, although I'm sure I paid less than that when I got them, they haven't been that bad blunter then I would of liked but perfectly adequate for filing plastic

I've started on the suspension but that's as far as I've got so far, I'd post a picture but I'm back at university and the bench is at home so I'll have to try and remember to take one when I go home next

It's been too long since I did any work on this but I'm now back at it so far I've got the wheels assembled and the suspension mounted onto the lower hull ready for me to find the airbrush out and prime them tomorrow
