Geez Col......Your gaurds come up better than mine,
I might have pulled a cab out for the "bake off" that's as far as I've got.....Finishing of the gluebomb.
You are doing good work Col, keep it up...I will learn from a old master.

Col:
I don't know what you are doing for the tray......I have had success in the past with 1mm balsa, scribed with a pencil to plank width,,,and lightly painted with......Black tea.

If it doesn't work.....you've got something to drink !

Great job on this so far Col, nice work on the frame. The spray can guards are a great idea, and came out just fine.
(Thanks for the Idea Clea, I'll be pinching this idea too)

Cheers
