Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 144, 145, 146, 151

We are close to end...maybe.  Initial thought: there is the "original" 130 issues with 20 issues for the train modifications of the Time Machine.  Well, with this shipment, we can see there are more to come.  Our calculations were not correct, and there are at least seven more issues left, possibly eight.  Details on this later, but let us get to this shipment

Issues 144, 145 ,146, 151

Surprise, we have missing issues.  Ah, the good news it, we have had the 'missing issues' (147-150) since April of 2020.  Yeah, that box of parts have been sitting there for almost a year.  There was a period when there were serious delays in receiving parts from Eaglemoss, so they just started shipping later issues. Those issues and parts would sit there until back issues arrived. 

Yes, for those keeping score, we are still waiting for Issue 128. 

Issue 144 Railroad Ties

Look familiar?  Yep, we are doing this...again.  Any guesses to what is next?

Issue 145 - Rail

Contents of Issue 145

If you guessed "Rail", you are correct!

Issue 146 - Train Wheel

Contents of Issue 146

Whoa!  What is this?  Something new and different!  A simple build as all you do is attached the disc to the metal train wheel.  Yes, metal.  Be careful not to lose the washer and cap, small parts.

Pro tip:  Keep the wheel in the blister.  There really is no need to remove the wheel to attach the disc.  You can also use the little baggie to store that cap and washer.
