Just caught with up these issues and another 4 landed on my doorstep care of the Royal Mail.

This was one of favourite issues as you can again start to see what the final product is going to look like. More internal framework for the body, leg support and fitting the projector.

The first step is to fit the side details and attach to the side frame panel.
