    Thanks Dave, the update on the website mentioned 4 components to be acquired and machined. Have they been sorted out already?

    @northernsteam To clarify the situation with the frame extension components. The outstanding component to allow the frame assembly to be completed is the rear dragbox fabrication. The other items mentioned on the website are to complete the 'frame assembly' stage of the project but are not show stoppers to the assembly actually commencing.

    Thanks for the whistle link @fergusmacg. I believe we already have a whistle in stock.

    Dave

    The latest SR tells me that the dragbox has now been ordered. Excellent news, how is the funding coming on? The website seems a bit out-of-date in that regard.
    Happy New Year everyone!

    Funding is coming along fine - though we can never have too much!
    Frame Model.PNG
    When all the current parts are assembled, the frame will look like this, though this is without the frame extensions and dragbox. the member who has made this model for us will make the extra parts soon, and they will be added once available.
    Currently the model is with Ian Riley (E) Ltd, and is being used by them as an aid in working out the sequence of construction.
