    I got some of these in the other day so I thought I would give it a go, the plastic is already coloured but I will have to paint it, albeit the same colours as they already are.

    It's not going to be a complex build

    I didn't bother with a build thread as no one apart from Peter seemed interested in this, so straight to the finished thing

    The only problem I had with it was the pins for the wheels, it is meant to have 4, I got 3 and a screw, I ended up not using them and just glued them on, apart from that, no issues at all, it fit together very well

    So did I, but I put the sides on first, there is a little hole for the handles and that lined them up fine, that give me a guide for the top
