Inspired by Bengalensis build I've decided to try and do this version

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)

Wondered how much filling would be needed so added some primer

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.

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.

I took the doors off picked it up by the front of course all that held it all together then was the very thin front roof pillars and of course they snapped.
