Im currently building this kit and have run into a snag. I dont understand the directions for putting the bin together. Has anyone done this model and have good pictures of it? Im hoping pics will help me understand how that part of it goes together.

Bump, could really use some pics of this if anyone has some. Ive searched the net and cant find any at all other than the one that comes with it which isnt much help at all.

I did a Google search too and came up empty. Can't believe that in 30 years nobody has built this kit and posted any pictures.

The best I can suggest is take some pictures and post them here as to where you are stuck and maybe somebody can help. The best way to post pictures here is to use an off site host to link the pictures to. Failing that you can send them to me and I'll post them for you.

You should post them to Railroad-Line, it's a learning curve, but at least they will always be here. Other photo host sites like Photobucket delete your pictures from here at times, leaving just an [x] in place of the photo. Or message across the picture like below examples.






An X is left like this one, in place of the picture.

It might seem awkward but gets easier with practice.

Thanks for the link Michael, if I ever get pics to upload I will try it lol.
I gave up on photobucket and I am trying to get pics to upload to this site but keep getting errors. I know the file size is small enough but maybe there is also a width and height size it has to be under as well?

Check the file names.
Only numbers and letters can be used.
Avoid spaces, dashes and punctuation marks.
Also physical size doesn't matter.
File size needs to be under 200kb.
Reduce resolution to make the file size smaller.
Forget about posting to an album.
Post directly to your thread.


As you think, so will you be.

Well done, Kenny.

I think there was a learning curve for all us posting photos. Itís a little fussy but becomes almost automatic after a while. I hope you keep us updated as you progress with your model.

Mike
