Jo-Han 1934 Benz 500K Finished

Recommended Posts

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.

Looks great, I like that colour. Looks like something a Bond villain would drive on his private island.

You did a fabulous job on that! It looks beautiful and the color choice is excellent for that car. I built the coupe equivalent a few years ago so I know all about the fit issues that you faced. Those kits can be quite a challenge.

That's excellent, even without having seen one of these kits for real I can imagine the challenge it would have been to put it together - it's worked out very well.

It was indeed a challenge Manny. Thanks for checking her out.

Sharp, sharp, sharp!!!   So cool to see these old "Classics" kits put together these days.  They were excellent kits (fit issues aside).  Mike, I built the coupe version of this kit many years ago, and while mine still looks good today, you really nailed yours.  Congrats on a highly successful project on your end!   TIM
