Not a hard build... maybe lots of planing and sanding, but not a difficult model to build. I assume you have read through the rather long thread on it?

[link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_2186098/tm.htm]http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_2186098/tm.htm[/link]

It is worth a read, from start to finish, and it will give you ideas you never thought of, as well as provide a huge amount of inspiration. Note the mods that have been made to linkage and support for the gear plates, etc. I think you will have a harder time covering it than actually building it.

Here's a link to my build thread too: [link=http://www.lobstercove.ca/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?num=1150245080]http://www.lobstercove.ca/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?num=1150245080[/link]

What do plan on using for an engine?
