    Has anyone kept track of the hours to do the build from the kit?

      1800 hours building time for the kit, including a long list of mods which all added hundreds of hours. Several repeat jobs were worked in there, and I was learning from scratch.

        Battson, this is not using any of the quick-build kit options? and you purchased each of the 3 kits in their entirety from Mark? Thanks! Matt

          No that is the quick build kit of 2012 vintage, the kits have changed a little over time.
          Without modifications and rework on my kit, it would have been more like 1200 to 1400 hours I would guess.

          I would also note that these are Bearhawk 4-place build times, but the building steps are similar enough for a Patrol that they should be comparable.
