Modelling time has been at a premium recently. At the weekend, I was sitting behind a demo table as part of the DOGA stand and at 8 in the morning, didn't know what I was going to build.
Rooting around in the cupboard I found a very old Coopercraft AEC Monarch kit - ideal as assembly takes a minimum of tools and glue.
I snapped a few stages of the build:
The kits, fresh from the bag. Note the discoloured plastic, it's THAT old.
Chassis assembly starts.
Main parts built and ready for paint.
I know this is a well known kit, a bit of a modelling cliche, but the finished lorry will look nice on Ruston Quays. The other road vehicles will be diecast, so it's nice to have at least one kit.
