I am in the process of making the Albion 3-Point fueller, but I had a bit of a problem with the cab, I followed the instruction very carefully and everything went well until I dry fitted the roof, hang on that dose not right, so I checked everything again, everything seamed to be in the right place. 

Tried the roof again, I had a gab of 2mm on the rear bulk head of the cab, so I scratched my head for half hour trying to fathom out what went wrong.

Fortunately I had purchased a second kit of the same vehicle of a certain web site cheap (Very Cheap) so I decide to use the cab from that l kit and it went together far better that the first one, no gaps on the roof line. Thankfully.

I would like to know if there is anybody that has the same problem that I had and how did they over come the problem.

Not familiar with that kit. What I often do before a build now is to google "reviews" of a specific kit to see if there are known problems with fit or parts, flash, etc. it can save the sort of headache you have experienced.

I agree with you "TedUSA", but if I come across a problem, I like to look in to ways of improving or rectifying the problem, as today was a case in hand, The Front bumper cross bar had broken, so I decide to remove the plastic cross bar and replace it with some 0.7mm brass rod I had. 

I removed the cross bar and carefully with a sharp point made a mark about the centre of the up rights and attached the to the model after the holes where drilled,

I also made a radiator inlet pipe for the engine by the same method, by drilling a 0.7mm hole on the cylinder head, in the appropriate place and just bent a short piece of brass rod to represent the connection between the radiator ad engine.

I just hope the image links work, please let me know if they do not. They work :-)

Looks like a great job! That would be good in a diorama too.
