Hey howya goin Danny mate, looking good mate looking good, I may have to try this kit at sometime, I like the handles. I couldn't get the sanding sealer from bunnings there are all sold out, Did you use sanding sealer before you painted the cabin? :bird-vi:

No Eddie, I used "Splashes" brand white wood primer (brushed on), followed by sanding and an application of automotive spray primer. Sanding Sealer is meant more for a "bare" wood finish, although it works just as well under paint. If you are painting the model you could just do the same as me. Any brand of primer would do the job.

That looks absolutely luxurious, Dan. I assume that you have modelled a scale-sized drinks-tray underneath that centre bench-seat.

Steve, this is actually a "bare bones" version of the coach - the luxurious ones were upholstered in brocade or satin :) . Imagine up to 12 people crammed inside :o .
