There's a handle on the upper right-center section of the windshield so he could hold on with his left hand while giving the royal wave with his right. I believe this was a feature on all the "parade" cars...,

there were 2 G4 W31s as well as a shortened verson of the 770K used in the TV show "Hogan's Heros"

Gil, Hitler's 770Ks(he used seven of these) were also bulletproof and armored. Those beasts weighed 4 tons.
The handle on the windshield was rather a rare feature, according to my research and knowledge. I don't think I've ever seen Hitler's 770K with it. He usually held on to the windshield frame. Here I got two great photos where it's clearly visible. Take a look.

And as it's the late evening here, it's time for some new "work-in-progress" photos as well.

Today I continued my work on the interior.
There're still couple more things to do in it but soon, I should be able to attach the sides of the car.

Looks perfect Kacper.Thanks for the answer, I saw that the transparencies look extremely clean, with cyano you can not always achieve such cleaning.I will have to try the PVA, here there is a lot of variety, some should work.

The interior is finished. I've also varnished it as later it would be quite difficult to do. Tomorrow I should be able to attach the sides of this W150.

Yes, the dashboard is based on the one from the original Hitler's car.
Here're photos.
