Welly 300 SL "Gullwing" (attention: picture-heavy!)


Recommended Posts

First there was a cheap die-cast...



Then it donated its bumpers to the 300 SL Roadster which had its own missing....

As the model has some issues (upper edge of the side windows is wrong, front valance panel should be much more rounded), it was decided to turn it into some kind of South American road racer: a bug deflector was mounted, as were 2 additional headlights - decals come from several sources: Fred Cady and other spares from my parts box - the Guatemala scripts were cut off Tom Tanner's fantastic Alfa Romeo 1900 Carrera Panamericana decal sheet. The side louvres and wheels got a black wash (unfortunately the hubcaps cannot be removed without destroying the wheels).

Now it was race-ready - here are photos from before the start ...



... and finally what it looked like after crossing the finish line:


This one needs urgently a wash !

Very creative indeed!  Looks like you've got an oil leak that needs fixing before you put it on the shelf though.

Thank you, guys - it is a lot of fun to modify a die-cast - at the moment I'm altering a little bit my second Danbury Testarossa 250...
