Incredible scratch building skills you have, not the first time you demonstrate that! That drivetrain will be great! I really want to build a clk so I will look out for one of those kits

Cool!

Thank you. The dashboard has been more difficult than I thought.

But now the general shape is done and I am confident to get the details done as well.

-Photo 1; There were two reasons for gluing a large strip of super thin styrene to the under side of the roof, and doors...1;It provides extra strength to all the glue joints, and is perfect for creating a lip for windows to attach to. I didnt cut open the windows until after the strips were glued in.

-Photo 2; nice lips for windows that ARE stronger than expected.

-Photo 3; I cut open area for door handles.

-Photo 4; These vents were suprisingly easy to make.

-Photo 5; Time to cut open the hood.

-Photo 6&7; I needed to thin the NACA duct here for a more realistic look.

-Photo 8; I needed to add another belly plate that will help locate the rockers, as well as give them a stronger glue point.

-Photo 9&10; In order to create a realistic door sill lip/door stop, i needed to add another strip of styrene to the tops of the sills.

-Photo 11; To help locate the rockers, i started the splash guards.

-Photo 12; To give a wee bit more room for the exhaust, i needed to cut open this area.

-Photo 13; They still need to be cleaned up, but here are the rockers.

-Photo 15; They fit like magic!

-Photo 16; Ready for the last few bits...then paint!!!

I'm on a roll!!, after i clean up these new bits, i can scribe the seams, and cut open the doors, and rear cowl -then paint!!

-Photo 1; Time to make stencils for the NACA ducts.

-Photo 2; Starting to put the vents in after curving them inward.

-Photo 3; All these bits will be trimmed after the glue has dried.

-Photo 4; I added the backing to the door handles.

-Photo 5&6; Bonnet vent all in.

-Photo 7&8; This is the windscreen wiper cover that is molded into the bonnet.

-Photo 9&10; Since i dont do replica stock, heres where i'm changing things up...the AMG V8 NO turbo, will be replaced with this AMG V10 twin turbo.

I saw a video of them racing on a dirt oval track...I wanted to scratchbuild one myself! 😂

EDIT: that one I saw doesn’t look quite the same, but I guess they’re related?

They are great, arent they?...They are basically the same, just different model years. Top Gear did a funny "Roll-Over" episode too!

I saw that one!  I think they run a version of a Mini engine, if I remember right?  Would love to see you tackle one of these (like you don’t have enough on your bench 🤪)

A great update here...i scribbed all the panel lines, and made the parascope. As of now, its all cleaned, and ready for primer tomorrow!

-Note; I still wasnt happy with the wiper cover, so i redid it again -now i'm happy with it.
