    Cool 1st build after a long wait....

    Hi builders,

    Yesterday received my kit, ordered in april. Thank you pandemic for trying my patience.
    STEP 1 completed: checking if all parts, nuts and bolts are there and they check out.

    eager to start, but will ponder on the finish first

    Keep posted for more updates

    Sand, sand, sand....
    Measure, doublecheck your measurements and reverify before assembly....
