      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Thank you very much for your comments! Glad you like the result, i am very happy with it.
    I took the old Revell Kit (#7202):

    Good choice and fits very good - i had no big Problems to build it. fits perfect, a lot of Details. liked it so, that i bought the open one (SLR Mille Miglia Revell #7204)
     
    Thanks again!

    Thanks Mike , i feel fine. i think, its a long way, but a couple of stones are away.
    in "under glass" section, it works with the pictures from my first entry, the 300SLR.
    perhaps, there are problems with my pictures on the server...the link won`t work, pictures are as same as always...but what else...
    here is a preview from my SLR:

    Based on the Revell Kit (#07171 new one, i took the old kit  #7202)
    On the built, there is nothing special to talk about. once a silver arrow, painted in his life blue with a couple of racingstripes, ready to race with racing seats, Steeringwheel and racing buckets.
    Some weathering and up on the road.

    Some picture, have fun

    doors are working

    Thanks for your Attention

    Sorry for late replay...I was in poor health and I'm back from the clinic ... I just did not feel well. But now i'm back, need some time to find my way.
    before i'm gone, i made my second entry ready for road.
    finished the body...chassis and engine.
    ?can't fit pictures?
  12. Dominik added a post in a topic How much have you spent on a build?   

    Hmmm...if i will build a model not out of the box, i have to pay more than 25$ for one - without paint, glue or anything else, what's on the workbench.

    to remember:
    builing a racecar (BMW M1 for example) with another Sponsor (BASF for example), you have to by decals for 25$...perhaps some other wheels, photoetch part etc. But thats "our" Hobby, if you will build it authentic correct. my opinion.

    as i am right, my "expensiv" model "ever" (i don't write it down, just have my own $-Limit per month) was this VW Caddy:
    Basic Kit 25$, Transkit from C1-Models about 55$, Wheels, engine, seats and other parts from Clearly Scale about 50$  without s&h from USA. But: it is unique and (f.m.o.) the result awesome . What is not listed are all the paints for weathering that i've ordered to try on this built.
