Turned up a few hours ago 'thanks Mr K' although I've been collecting bits in anticipation of the arrival for a while.

This makes project four on the go at the moment... bloody fool!

Anyway messing around with the idea for forks and at the minute it's Vectors which will be getting a colour change, but forks may change as things go along.

Better pics will come as things progress, I hope.
