Volvo FH12 build
A superb kit, it's my first truck build and I'm enjoying every step of it. If you follow the instructions to the letter, you can't really go wrong. Typical Tamiya manual, all logically laid out in sequence, with part identification in full size..that helps a lot. An excellent kit, it won't be my last. Thanks Wonderland, you supplied an excellent product!
