Hi all got this for my birthday 









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)

Did a bit more to the engines





Started adding the shackles plates to the bed



Wondered how much filling would be needed so added some primer





Must say I'm quite pleased so far.

Had a go at making a winch for the flatbed.

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.
