I once had a Saab 95 wagon with a 4 on the column. It was a very cool car.  It had this one thing though... as you drove the dash mounted ashtray would vibrate open. When you shifted down to 4th gear, wham!  Your hand would make contact with the edge of that ashtray!  I noticed there was dried blood on the sharp edge.  I'm not a smoker so I threw the ashtray in the back seat! End of problem.

 

Wow! That's not good, I wonder how many persons threw the ashtray in the back. :D

Wheels! The wheels are pretty cool, because are two parts and when assembled they looks real.

Very nice work!...

HELLER kits from the 60's-70's are surely not the easiest car kits to assemble :rolleyes:

 

The "R16" was surely a very rare sight in north america (quite more in Quebec/Canada), but surely not adapted for upper US east coast/mid west & canadian winters... finish/quality control & reliability... :wacko:

This is my second Heller, the first one was a 1/43 Lancia Delta S4, a poor kit... This one has nice details, but lack in others...

I don't remember too much about my grandfather car, but I remember because of the salt used in the winter on the roads, the under chassis was all rusted and with holes. :(

The engine is ok, need  some more details I think.

The first thing that need to be more real is the starter.

you didn't know, how rare this kit is - also in Germany very hard to find. This year (i have an eye on it) there were only two at ebay...more collector grab them and nobody build it.

 

I will watch your progress. It is a really cool kit...like your work so far.

 

Go on Buddie ;)

I had a hard time to find it too... I mean to find it with a "good" price. :) I paid it $75 with shipping, new and in sealed box. I saw some with a price tag of $140, the cheaper one I find, was a started one, with missing and broken pieces for 30 Euros. Needs a lot of patience to find one still non assembled and with a good price. I will check around and if I find something I will let you know. :)

Thanks!

 

Removed the starter, filled up it's space, and rebuilt exhaust manifold and carburetor.
