BMW 507

Recommended Posts

To complete the trio after my Jag and SLR, another one from the same kit-decade.

BMW 507 - Revell 7200

It is not specially built after they found Elvis old BMW, no, it was in the startline with the old Revell kits and  my wish to buildt some cars out of the mainstream.

I've built it also straight out of the box, used the first issue of the kit (molded in white) and made no changes. Only the decals were to old to fit. New ones i got later but till yet missed them to get in place. shame on me. Sprayed out of the rattlecan inside and outside - "nothing special".

It looks very nice in my view.  Had no problems with the built. It is not bad as i thought, made fun.

Pictures, here we go:

Like the different subject, don't think I've seen one built.  Looks very nice!

But something is missing.... :rolleyes:

Dominick, that is a super nice BMW, and it's also another one of my favorites of the '50's! I built this years ago (early '90's) and even back then I did not find this terribly difficult. Certainly not as troublesome as the 850i I built a couple years ago! :o

Yours is so nice and clean and I happen to have another kit of this car (with soft top) that I should build again sometime.
