9116 Refurbished Cab - 10

Compare the cab with the smashed cab in the previous series. This is after much cementing, filling, sanding and repainting! All of which, I am sure, will eventually be a waste of time after the next inevitable accident! I do have a couple of spare cabs now (and virtually every other mechanical spare part should I need it)!

In some of the pics you can see the tail still has a slight downward bend. I do have a complete replacement assembly which I will probably attached while I do a better repair on the original unit. If you think you can see tape across the canopy "glass", that's because you can. Two layers of clear parcel tape, in fact. This is to guard the canopy against cracking on those occasions when the balance bar strikes it - and that can occur either if you make too violent a control input; or you crash; or even when the onboard battery dies.
