I'd like to share my next build - a Revell's BMW 507. Looks like a solid kit with great details and a faithfully reproduced body. The only downside imo is the kit supplied wheels. I personally like the rudge wheels a lot more than the dog dish hub cabs supplied in the kit. Since there are no aftermarket wheels I could find, I decided to use rudge wheels from a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing.
I got a good deal on an old partially started AMT Mercedes Gullwing kit and took the rudge wheels from this kit. Apart from the wheels, I'm planning on building this mostly OOB, but who knows.. Color will be Tamiya TS-38 Gun Metal with a tan interior. Thanks for looking in!
Body looks really nice. Started with cleaning the body and attaching the separately molded lower front fascia.
On the left is the kit supplied wheel and dog dish. On the right is the wheel from the AMT Gullwing kit and the 507 wheel with the center cut out.
I fit the Gullwing wheel inside the 507 wheel. Although this creates an extra lip, it looks decent enough to pass. The kit wheel actually looks really nice with the dog dish so the first cut was a little painful.
And a little fun... I think the Mercedes hubcab on the 507 wheel is actually a nice look.
