I have to  admit I’ve quite enjoyed getting to grips with this.  The beauty of a white metal kit is that you can tweak it with low melt solder used as a filler.  You don’t have to wait for it to dry and it doesn’t break away when you attack it with files and filler.  I decided to do a solid sided box and do away with the windbreak in the end.  I also replaced the marker/indicator lights and added the rainstrips from wire. The front panel, below the windscreen was filled with solder, sanded smooth and the panel re-scribed so that it was the same height at both ends! Below is where it is now.

    Hi Jim,

    Having been involved with the FL6 in one way or another for twenty odd years I must say you have managed to capture the look of the vehicle very well.
    But don’t stop there because the ‘Club of four cab’ has many other uses, see below.
