Doyusha 1/12 Mercedes 450SL.

Hello Friends, after disappearing for a while, I returned with a different project. In the 80’s, my father had a 450sl mercedes, in time he had to sell it for other life projects, but he always missed the car. This year, I decided to give to him on his birthday an exact replica of the car he had. As I had photos stored, and memories, I was able to reproduce it in its smallest details. The biggest challenge was finding a kit for that car in question. After several contacts with modeling friends, a rare and out of production Doyusha appeared on the 1/12 scale. I did not think twice and split up !! The car was painted with automotive paint, in the correct original color, manganese brown. The interior was red, and my father’s car did not have the magnesium wheels, but the hubcaps. I used red fabric to make the carpet as faithful as possible. The kit misses having the mercedes emblem on the trunk lid as well as the 450sl logo. I hope you like the final result, the kit is very good, extremely rich in detail …
