First pic you can see the attaching the heavy bearing to the kitbit seems to have worked. You can also see i've started detailing the barrel.
There's none going on at the back because, as you can in pic 2, the rear is still open. That's because the next real worry is the body pulling away from the legs. What i've done is to make the hole in the body much bigger than it should be. Glued the legs to the body with Araldite. Left it a good 2 days to go off and have now smeared the inside join with P38. Won't know if its worked until i try getting it to stand up - and that's another problem.
