Mercedes T-80 1:18 scale

Recommended Posts

Mercedes T-80

This is my first scratch-built car. It's a Mercedes T-80 built in 1939 for Germany's attempt on the 'Land Speed Record'. With the outbreak of the Second World War it was put into storage and now is exhibited in the Mercedes museum Stuttgart.

You can see exactly how I made this and many other models on my YouTube channel here https://www.youtube.com/c/StaplesandVine







Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy my other projects.
