  1. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Attack Kits Mercedes L1500 Personnel Carrier (aka "Kübelwagen"), built from the box. The "Profi Pack" box contains flawless plastic parts, resin wheels and a photo-etch fret. Due to scale, assembly was rather fiddly, and the instructions are sketchy in places. I painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, according to instructions, representing a vehicle of 8. Panerdivision, France 1944. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thank you for you
  2. I know I really shouldn't be starting another build, but with a major relocation looming I don't want to be adding masking which may stay in place for over 3 months. Since my other builds have mostly reached the stage of masking, and having just picked this up on evil bay, I couldn't resist opening it up to see what was needed. This will NOT be a quick build, as it will take a backseat to all other builds I have in progress. However, I always enjoyed these Matchbox kits as a kid and I love the subjects (I also just got hold of the Auto Union!) so time to take a look....
  3. Another subject I've been working on for some time. Scratch work doesn't come easily to me and takes me forever. I'll pore over reference material for hours on end as an excuse not to perform any physical work. So cutting away a small element because it doesn't quite fit in with my sense of authenticity can be very dangerous! It is hugely satisfying though in the long term. 66 years to the day (1st May 1955) since this car won the event. Revell 'Classic' 1/24 Mercedes 300 SLR 1955 Mille Miglia worki in progress
  4. I completed all the wheels. Compared to the wheels of the Alfa and Rolls, the wheels of the Mercedes need more adjustment/time. The 2 plastic rim halves don't fit, all the nipples of the spokes had to be redialled (hole too small) and all the spokes had to be bend on one side. For the bending I made a small jig out of a plastic pipe. I drilled a hole with the diameter of a spoke and the depth to the point where the spoke needed a bend. As the inner and outer spokes were not the same I had to drill a 2nd hole on a thicker part of the pipe. The bending of the spokes was needed to make
  5. This is my first go in the comprehensive italeri truck kits! Colour is tamiya TS58,pearl light blue. I like the scale,things aren't too small!,plus my hands aren't as steady as they once were! Good detail,some flash on some of the parts. Ive lost a few parts,by accident, and my workstation isn't the tidyist!,so finding them,a bit tricky!. I used tamiya aerosols,and some airbrushing, mainly the cab interior. I used AK pigments and washes, i did like the engine,came up quite good. One thing,quite a few parts were a tight fit,especially if been painted, so i
  6. Benz Patent-Motorwagen 1886 (24040) 1:24 ICM via Hannants We’ve been addicted to petroleum for over a century now, but in the late 1800s the predominant power source was still steam, although that just used another form of fossil fuel. When Karl Benz applied for a patent for his Motorwagen in 1885, it became the first petrol-powered production vehicle that was designed from the outset to use this method of propulsion. When you look at its three-wheel design it appears to have been the product of the mating between a horse carriage, a bicycle and a grandfather cl
  7. Typ 170V Lieferwagen (38040) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd The Mercedes 170 was based upon their W15 chassis, which was their first with all-round independent suspension, and was available as a bare chassis for coachbuilders, as a saloon, cabriolet or as a light van, debuting in the early 30s with sales affected by the worldwide depression that started in Wall Street. Sales picked up after the recession eased, and later versions had internal boot/trunk-space and sleeker lines, moving with the times. As well as sharing a chassis with the saloon,
  8. Hi all, I just got across the finish line with the Stirling Moss build, who was unbeaten after 10 hours, 7 minutes and 47 seconds of racing and the only British driver to win the event. Fit issues aside, I think it looks the part. I thought the pin badge sat nicely on the rear of the car. The Revell kit did not come with the union jack decals, but I got them from a set of flags for a ship model kit I had in my stash, they were the perfect scale for the car. This is an out of the box build, I substituted some clunky kit parts such as the side trims for silver solder and short lengths of cu
  9. After hearing about the sad passing of the great Stirling Moss, I had to bring this kit out of hibernation; it’s been in my stash for the past 5 years, looks a superb kit, one of Revells better offering I think. I will try and make a start on it later this week.
  10. Here's the CLK GTR completed. One of the best cars ever, in my opinion. The kit is hard but rewarding in the long run.

  13. Hi all! It's been a while, but I'm back with a little fun! I recently bought a couple of old Airfix 1/32 carkits, among those were this 1/32 1904 Mercedes. The kit had already been started and there were glue smears and the build wasn't that good, but it was cheap, so I thought 'why not'! Now I've hatched a plan and I put this to you - what if - just with a stretch of imagination - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang wasn't a fantasy, but reality! This is then set a couple of years after Chitty Chitty Bang Bang where the sight of flying cars isn't a novelty anymo
  14. Here's the Tamiya kit with Studio27 detail up and composite sheet. Any comment is welcome
  15. Well that took a while, about 15 years to be exact! I started this model when I was in my teens and finished it tonight aged 30. It’s been done in stages with varying equipment and skill levels. From what I can remember… Sorry photos haven't turned out the best, the "soft focus" hides some of my blunders I did all the chassis stuff years ago, it’s all brush painted. To be honest I don’t think I did that bad a job of the engine and suspension components. The larger areas that I have brushed are a bit pants but overall its not bad. Worth saying at this
  16. German Staff Car "G4" 1:72 Revell The Mercedes Benz W31 type G4 was a large, three-axle car designed specifically for use as a staff car by the Wehrmacht. Powered by an eight-cylinder inline engine, the cars weight an impressive 3.7 tonnes. Maximum speed was limited to 42mph as a result of the chunky all-terrain tyres. Just 57 cars of the seven-seater cars were produced, of which at least three exist in their original state. One is located in Hollywood and is regularly used for war films. The vehcle is, of course, most famous for being used by Adolf Hilt
  17. Just finished this. This is the first car of a clients father.
  18. Hi guys, got this preordered and arrived yesterday, so just GOT TO build it!! LOL!
  19. Hi guys, this is the final reveal of the Mercedes AMG GT3 race car. This was a challenging kit to build for me, the kit decals were very thick, I had to use Tamiya X20A thinner to soften the decals on the rear wing and the carbon decals to get them to settle down, also I found the rear lights tricky to install. In order to preserve the matt finish on the body, I used Deluxe Materials Glue and Glaze to attach all of the lights and the windows etc, including the door handles and the mirrors to avoid marking the matt finish. Overall, for my first performance race car that I've ever built, I am ha
  20. Finally got this built. Here it is in all its glory: On the whole, an enjoyable building experience. Tamiya kits are really at the top of the tree for quality. The only issue I had was with the number plate decals. As soon as they hit the (painted) plastic, they stuck right where they were placed. Didn't happen with any of the other decals from the same sheet. Weird. Hope you enjoy it. The build can be seen here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235007398-tamiya-124-mercedes-benz-amg-500sl/ All
  21. Hi All, I seem to have got a bit of enthuisam back for modelling again! This has been on and off my bench for a considerable while. I'm not sure how long I have had this beast. Several years at the least... Cover picure: I think that this muscular beast will look good with my Mazda Mx-5. Two totally different cars, both with the idea that driving can be fun... Anyway the obligatory sprue shot: As you can see, there are a number of bits removed from the sprues, that's because I started on this model a fair while ago, then for lack of enthusiasm, I packed it all up, and more-or-less fo
  22. Started this one last week. The Revell Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Something different then a Ferrari or a muscle car! It's going to be a pearl white car. I was going to use HobbyDesign SMG wheels, but the kit wheels look better with different tyres. The box and the wheels: Instructions, decals and body: All the parts: Quick setup of the car: Primed all the parts: And it will be a pearl white SLS AMG. So I painted the body parts with 1 grey coat of primer and 2 white coats. Got some bad experience with using white primer only... Tomorrow I'll try to
  23. Mercedes CLK GTR, pictures thanks to Rick.
  24. For my Dornier-diorama (see here for the build report of the Dornier) I recently purchased a number of vehicles. Yesterday I started work on the first, the Mercedes-Benz L1500 fire truck by Fan Kit Models. No instructions were provided, but fortunately on the kit maker's website there are several pictures of the model (otherwise I wouldn't have known how to build it). Yesterday I found out that this is a pre-1940 model (very rare) so that the diorama can be set in 1939 after all. Impressive box art: 1. 'Pushing-cutting' the resin can be done the standard way, with a knife...
  25. Hi Everyone, Here is my completed build of the Revell 1/24 scale Mercedes GP Petronas MGP W01 in Michael Schumacher's decal scheme for the German Grand Prix. This kit was painted entirely in Revell acrylic paints after being hit with a coat of Humbrol grey primer. Except for a minor problem with the fit of the rear wing section (which doesn't look too bad), this kit was an enjoyable build. Anyway onto the photos. Thanks as always for looking. Comments welcome. Rick
