Hi gang,

My next project is underway, I'm turning an ERTL 988B into a 988F. Well, not much of the original 988B will be left, as I've been slowly learning just how inaccurate the base model actually is. The following videos are the start up until now. Basically, I'm building it all from scratch.

Workshop Overhaul and Project Start

The Build Begins

Building the Rear Frame

Starting the Front Frame

Finishing the Front Frame








I'll update this thread as the project rolls on!
