The basic model was simple to assemble - all parts were washed thoroughly and dried, top and bottom halves of hull were glued together with araldite epoxy resin. Wheels were also attached with araldite, taking care to ensure they all touch the ground. They vary slightly in size/shape, not very much but enough that you could end up with a vehicle that wobbles or has a middle wheel just off the ground!
I've added quite a few details to these. Grab rails/handles have been fashioned out of 0.56mm 24swg tinned copper wire superglued into holes I've drilled in. I find that this wire bends and cuts very easily so is ideal for making quick additions like this. The resin is very easy to drill into. A tarpaulin has been sculpted out of super fine white milliput to fill up an empty space on the side of the hull.
