Looking good Mike, I too have one of these in my 'to build pile'. 

 

I agree with your colour choice, but you might want to check the instructions - I think part of the inner roof liner has to be painted body colour too IIRC.

Thanks guys!

 

Work has gotten in the way of my building by leaving me very tired and with little to no time whatsoever and I have also been sidetracked by smaller projects.  I am going to make this my main project and shoot for the deadline of the Classic Plastic Model Club show on October 6th to finish the Merc.

Work on the interior has started.

I've been polishing the hood and body and found a major flaw on the hood.  So far, I have polished the paint down to the plastic and I'll prep for another painting session.

Nice looking build. If I could have one super car, that is the one I'd be picking! Maybe I need a 1:24 version :)

I'll be looking forward to seeing this in a couple of weeks, Mike. I might even have something to bring, myself.

Beautiful work, Mike!  She is coming along nicely.  Very clean build.

 

I have one of these with the Model Design detail set, hopefully, one of these years.

Thanks Bill, Charlie, and Scott!  

Scott, how have you been?  Haven't seen you at the meetings for a while and I hope you can make it to one or at least, the Exhibition on Oct. 6.

Charlie, I'm hoping to see something that you built at the Exhibition on Oct.6.

Bill, you've gotta get one of these!

Thanks Ron!

I painted the body, doors, and hood with a 3rd coat of Tamiya TS-85 Bright Mica Red this morning.

Life has been kicking me really hard in the past month and I am finding little to no time to work on the SLS.  I fear that I'll not be able to finish it in time for the Club Challenge for next month's show.

 

More to come...

This is just stunning! Great job, mrmike! SLS is one of my favorite cars, too bad I don't see it too often.. I can't wait for another pictures :)
