    Hi Skip
    The shift lever is scratched with a alurod and leftovers from the scrap box. And you are right regarding the parkingbrake ! As I said, a real sh*t model !! The manual said it should be between the seats, but when looking
    at my refs I can see it should be to the left of the seat, I wasn´t aware of this at all :-(

    Just a few interior pictures, the spinners came from an old bburago kit, locked nearly as the original.

    Hi Skip and thanks :-)
    The grille was awful! I used this tool on the picture, maybe it´s called a scriber ?! I gently cut off the star on the top and bottom, and also replaced the middle grill "wings" with plastic card.
    Also I used a saw to make the star cylinder shorter the I put mesh behind it, I hope you understand what I mean :-)

    M-B 300 SL "Targa Florio " 1:12
    Hi
    This is a well known very bad Revell/monogram  model. But I got one to a very good price so I decided to do it the easy way. I made a curbside. Only one door can be opend.
    The body parts is divided in a upper and lower part so there will be nasty joints on the front and rear fenders, I don´t know what they was thinking when making this kit.
    Someone on the net cut opened  a big hole in the lower part and put in the interior pice from the bottom, so did I and it worked rather well.
    The grill and the rims are modified , the dash and interior has a little extra too .Decals from the sparebox, old style German license plate printed out from the net.
    Painted with Tamiya spray can white and clear.
    I thought it would look like an old Targa Florio racer so this is it. :-)

    I didn´t know it had been a die cast kit from the beginning, I built the reissue from italeri some time ago. Nice to see one more ! You done a nice job restoring this one

    Revell BMW Isetta "Jägermeister" 1/16
    Hi
    This is my last finished kit this year. A new  one from Revell, very nice to build.
    Not fond of building street cars so I gave it a little racing look :-)
    Some details on the engine and also a few other racing stuff.
    Painted with Tamiya spraycans , racing white and orange + clear.

    Hi

    Skip: No problems at all, a little simpified maybe but I think it looks very close to the real thing

    M-B 450 SLC Safarirally 1979 1/12
    Hi
    This is the Otaki roadcar kit but I wanted to do the rally version with Björn Waldegård as driver in the Safarirally 1979.
    There is a Safari version issued from Otaki (very hard to find ) but with Mikkola as driver. I got help from a modelling friend who scanned the decals for me.
    Then I  had some work with modifying them to the Waldegård version. I did some modifying in the interior , removed the back seat, some
    new instruments on the panel. also filled in with switches and a microphone. Scratched the rollbar. The seats are from my scrapbox, they looked ok I think.
    Most work was to scratch the front parts, made my own headlights and the other stuff too, used a brass rod for the front protectionbar.
    The parts in the rear is scratched too including the mudflaps.
