I built this Revell Merc back in 2016. I added some side trim from half round plastic strip to separate the colours.

Gorgeous, first one I've seen with new chrome added.

Any pics of how you did it?

After working out the shape I wanted I just cut it to length, glued it on and cut it throught where the door shut lines were. Here's a pic before paint.



After it was painted it was just a matter of putting some BMF on it.

Yep, sounds easy!

Lots of them were done with chrome trim from other cars back in the day just like that.

Thanks for the pic.

A beauty of a Leadsled and I really like the chocolate/toffee colour combo, retro and classy.
