More done today - fitted the wheels and the steering linkages, then finished off the driver's controls - still need to add the control panel for the second driver.

Wait a minute two drivers? one at the back one at the front? what a weird machine! looks good though 

Quite common on Recce vehicles so that the 'rear' driver can drive you out of contact as fast as you got into it. Probably more needed with a huge thing like this. When it's done i'll put my Humber next to it for size 🙂
