i am just about to fix the front links and weight,went to apply the bonnet decals and the spacing is all wrong,the end of the massey ferguson is to near the cab,you can see what i mean from the 2 pictures, so ordered some more to go with my missing worklight

looks good mate , I like the way you've broken down the building process so that mere mortals like myself can see each stage of the build, very helpful.

thanks ghost,it is nice to show how things are done,if i see a conversion i like and its not broke down in sections,i have to bombard the person who built it,and you dont always get a reply,glad you like it mate
