I think one was built in New Zealand! May be wrong. I am sure Jilles will know. Have the plans etc if you want to have a go!

I would love to.......just a matter of time! I’m backed up quite a bit in the model building section of life.....the other “less important” things like work and sleep keep getting in the way! :)

Got hold of the names of the Guys in New Zealand that both had the parts cut locally.
the health of one guy turned bad and I under stand he is in and out of hospital.The other was busy building a new house and shed. That is now completed, The new shed is large enough to build the 1/2 scale PWS so there is hope one will finally be built

Hi Tom, No I have not found anyone yet, I am sending kits across at the moment but postage is horrendous! A 1/3 scale kit on average costs £70+ to post! some of that cost is insurance but still B****y expensive. I dread to think what the cost of the half-scale would be.
