Here's a little project I'm working on for my father. He gets the biggest kick out of Rommel's Rod so I decided to replicate it in 1/87 scale. The car is a Wiking Mercedes 540 and the rest is scratchbuilt. I've got several sprues of detail parts from the old Mini-tanks line. That's where the tracks came from.

Just got the fenders formed and mounted tonight. Lots more work before it's finished.

Thanks for looking.

that is fantastic it always amazes me how people work with tiny models smaller than 1/43rd scale.

Not much progress the last few days. I got the rear fender side skirts started.

I also painted some of the detail parts that will go on after paint. The side table and storage chest are the only two scratchbuilt items.
