Wrebbit Mercedes-Benz 1935 500K Roadster 1:10

Hi All,

Decided to do something different for my next model.

It's the Wrebbit 1935 Mercedes 500K Roadster. Kit comes with 18 sheets of different thickness cardboard, pre-cut, 553 parts, instruction book and a plastic bag of string, dowels and other small pieces.

Printing looks excellent with many chrome pieces and all in a glossy finish.

Fred

Here are the final photos to complete Part 1.

Have not had a problem fitting the parts. Since the parts are all glossy, have roughed up the areas where the glue goes to create a better bond.

Really like this model so far.

Next up is the Engine.

Fred

I'm joining too to see how this is built. Never seen a construction report of it. So this will be most interesting!

Looking good! I'm currently building this one myself, you're almost at the same point I am. The fit of all the parts is great. Working overtime has put a crimp in my building. I hope you enjoy this build as much as I have.

I remember trying to build this kit 15 years ago. I wish I could find another one to try again.
