Can find no detail of the chassis so will have to make that up, will have to learn resin casting as I will have 3 pairs of suspension to make and 6 wheels.not allowed to start it till the 26th

Hi all well I've started, going to build the Meilen version.

Started on the engines.

And got the colour I'm going to use, i may be adding gold go faster stripes to it, not sure yet

The eagle eyed among you may notice I've had a weird reaction to the paint on one of the doors (all the rest of the paint work seems to be ok)

Strange how paint reacts sometimes but all the other parts look great.

Excellent work! The engines look great and I can't wait to see the 'flatbed' develop.

Hi all here's the next update put the suspension together temporarily to see what size wheels I will need for the flatbed.

1/24 scale with tyre at 28 mm so unless some kind person has 8 wheels with tyres that size I will have to have a go at resin moulding.
Did some more to the engines and done the leather seats as well.

Great work! The winch looks awesome, as do the engines and the interior leather. Best of luck with the wheels/tyres - I'm sure resin moulding will be effective.

I've noticed that as they've used common parts in both kits the chrome strips on the cabriolet version have not been continued on the front wings so I've added them.

Excellent and beautiful progress! Nice catch on the missing trim as well. The interior and body colour combo is fabulous, looking forward to the further development.

Beautiful development on the previous photos! Also, glad to see that the catastrophe wasn't absolute - the repairs look good.
