Love the chassis weathering and really love the realistic tires.

Hello !

This is followed by an internal reconstruction.
When fitting the tail, paint comes into play for the first time.
The star is seperat placed on the radiator grille nachden This "chromed" was.
The wooden boards for the benches are disassembled and individually glued.

Kind regards from Austria
Kurt

Hello everybody !

The steering wheel on the armouring board will be assembled later.
The center console with fire extinguisher is placed under the dashboard.
The two seat parts are covered with "real leather" to get an aged surface.

Friendly greetings from Styria

great examples

of how a little work separating things that are printed on (like cutting the boards apart) really enhances the "realism" of the model

Hello friends !

Make the large bench with wooden strips in a known way.
Glue the two benches.
Thus, the interior is finished

I like very much the "wooden" benches and the "old leather" seat. Great idea!

Did you consider to print an alternate set of detailed instruments for the dashboard? I't's a pity, in a such detailed interior, to have those empty dials.
(Please excuse me... I'm a little maniac about dashboards... )

That front seat looks well lived in. Great realism.

Hello

@ Tonino : I exuse you for your Little maniac , but itīs not mine

Now it's all about the body ...

The windows are glued to the inside wall.
First, place the two parts on top of the cover and fix with clothes clips.
Then I start from behind with the glue, then I change the side and stick step by step forward.
The finished sidewall fits both inside and outside very well.

Friendly greetings from Austria
Kurt

Hello !
At the rear roof there is a small overhang, this same I with 0.5 mm cardboard from, so the roof part comes flat to lie flat.
The original lugs I replace by my own under the roof, and reinforce this inside with 0.5 mm cardboard.
In order to adapt the roof segment better, I installed a spar, as well as the wheels with tabs.
The roof I then glued from back to front.
To reinforce this segment, I add a 1 mm cardboard plate underneath the roof and a support strut at the front.

regards

Hello

After a break, it really was not a break, because we are with the road bike to Dubrovnik,
But that was also GREAT, it is now again here ......

The slits are glued with small tabs, and the roof is preformed well.

First glue up, then pull down, has unfortunately not become so beautiful.
This is followed by the bonnet with the closure strip. Only in the middle glue ...
* ... then pull the pages down.

Kind regards from Styria
Kurt
