    It's nice to see you recording your build here.
    Once I've finished the, 0935, I want to do one of the T9's older brothers, an X6 by Adams.

    Hi George,
    Like the builds but please could you press the "full image" tab when you add them. All I'm seeing are the thumbnails which then have to be opened.
    Cheers,
    Peter
