I blame a certain TM Member for leading me astray.....
I ordered this....
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=ZPIEEl2nHl0

This is what arrived....


46 pages of instructions...
437 parts, laser cut from birch ply
The car is assembled using wooden dowels, rubber bands bees wax, but no glue.

Oh, and a lot of very careful attention to detail...
It looks like a +8 4 Seater...
I will start the model and post updates...
Three speed gear box, working front suspension, working engine and all powered by 16 rubber bands..

The UK supplier will have more stock by the end of January.
If you like models, Morgans and working with wood, what is not to like?

With the colour of the lasered wood, It even looks like your Plus 8 with a 4 seater back

Happy modelling

Those dowels don't look very tough..
Might have to help with some PVA....

This looks like the start of a "Group Build" !!

BTW, I'm doing this to win the night out with SBM... as long as he is buying!
