Jo-Han 1934 Benz 500K

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, it has been a while since I started a kit but one day this one just jumped out at me. These kits were and ARE great older kits to build. The packing was great and the fit of parts is very good.

This is where I am at so far.

I finally Finished this. Lots of fitment issues with the windshield and small parts at the end. Wheels and tires were also problematic, but she is done.

Well done. I also enjoy building these classic era autos. They are big enough for fat fingers to work on and detailed enough to leave you very satisfied when you're finally done.

Thank You Rich. I did enjoy the build and I do not do too many builds as we are a Model Train Shop.

That looks great!

(Foiling the body trim on these is no easy task but you've done an excellent job.)

Thanks so much Peter. I did all that trim with Molotow chrome Pens.

Thanks, Mike
