Thanks to the few who were interested.


Jürgen, I hope you don't get disheartened by the limited response some of your incredible models attract on this site - I guess some of your subject matter is a little obscure outside the German-speaking world.

But I'm sure that it's immediately clear to all those who have seen your work that you are definitely one of the world's premier automotive modelers and I really hope you continue to post everything you build here.

Agreed. A lot of members here are into muscle cars, drag racing, street rods, that sort of thing... they have no interest in a model like this. But I assure you that there also are members here who love to see this sort of work, especially when it's done to such a level of craftsmanship. Keep posting. Don't count the number of replies to your posts as a commentary on your work. Remember that those of us who are interested in this sort of model may be fewer in number, but we're here.

 

The subjects I build aren't exactly popular with most of the people here, but that doesn't stop me from posting them for those members who do like to see something besides muscle cars and drag cars. You also need to keep on posting!

Thanks for all further comments.

 

 

Peter, you really make me blush.

 

 

Peter, Harry, thanks for your encouraging words.

 

I joined the MCM Forum in May and it took quite a while to realize that it does not work like the European forums I knew before. Indeed, when I wrote the quoted sentence I was still amazed (among other things) that response depends mainly on the interest in the 1:1 vehicle and less on the expectation of seeing a good or poor model.

 

In the meantime, however, I learned that there seems to be a more or less impermeable dividing line between  the various fields of interest in car modeling. My personal field of interest, i. e. building historically correct models, is obviously shared only by a minority of members, but I also learned that these members are really interested and that the skills and the historic expertise of these modelers are often excellent.

 

More than that I realized that topics of all members have little response whenever the 1:1 vehicle or even the scale is not mainstream.  

 

Knowing this I am quite happy here and I enjoy the peaceful athmosphere. I am afraid you have to bear my German English for the future.

Believe me, your "German English" is better than some members' American English!

Scratchbuilt? That is simply amazing. You, sir, have some talent! 

What Harry said. Absolutely remarkable, especially considering the rather limited information you're working with.

That nose gives the cab an almost animalistic look to me. I fan hardly believe it is a scratch build. Beautiful job mate be proud of your talents, I hope you have a kid or nieces and nephews to pass this talent along to.

Thanks for all further comments.

 

As said in the topic my L 10000 shows the 1937 model. 1938 Mercedes introduced a modernized cab that anticipated the early post-war styling of all Mercedes cabs. In my opinion this modernized cab is far less attractive. Maybe you agree. I found this 1938 picture (photo by courtesy of Daimler-Benz AG/ Daimler AG) in my old files:

I can´t belive I missed this somehow. My main focus is on American truck models and this was off my attention at first. Untill now. I didn´t realise it was a scratch build. That changed the way I look at the model. It´s really top class job and it sure deserves lots of respect. It takes a great craftsmanship to achieve a look like this with all the parts being home made. And if there´s no surviver in the real world, that makes it even more unique. You did fantastic job in three fields... the research, the model building and picture taking.  I have nothing but very very deep respect for you. And I am sorry for overlooking your great build.
