1962 Opel Rekord

Recommended Posts

Another Airtrax kit completed. I really enjoy building those unusual european cars.

Still learning, but every build seem to turn out better so far.

Great to see such an unusual subject and it must be a real challenge to get a resin kit to look so good. Very fine work.

Very nice and quite an unusual subject! I know the car, but I've never seen any of those here in the states. I can remember seeing another model Opel (Kapitan?) as a kid, but its styling was a bit different with a late '50's/early '60s very GM-like wraparound windshield.

This looks great!!

Have a friend that owns one, and the model is spot on. 

Always thought the engine to look like a small version of the Chevy 151 four. It sounds just like it.

That's very nice! Couple of times I've been thinking about buying one of these bodies, it would look great as an old Drag Car, but never bought one yet. Nice to see one built Factory Stock too, especially when it's done as nicely as this. Excellent work overall! Nice and smooth paint job and flawless detailing too. All BMFs on chrome trims are so nice and smooth plus that I like that minor weathering in chassis too.

Very, very nice, beautiful work.

Indeed funny to see some small GM design influence (Twin "lipstick" caddy tail lights).
