Back to the classics – part 2

In response to Jack Mugan’s recent posting here’s my version of Tamiya’s Mercedes. I’ve finished it as a stock European version, complete with chrome bumpers, and, yes, a bakelite steering wheel! Thanks to Jack for encouraging me to post these pictures. Now, if only Tamiya would produce of some other 50/60’s classics, such as the E-Type Jaguar, Ferrari 275 GTB and Chevrolet Corvette to go with it …

3 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  10. Beautiful build, George. Everytime i see a new kit from your ” garage shop” i want to build a car. Very nice.
    The Exhaust (?) is hanging a bit deep is that right ?
    Some time ago here in Goslar was a SL/SLK meeting with all these old Mercedes cars, impressive !

  11. Beautiful Mercedes, George.

    You’re right. I’d LOVE to see some other oldies like you mentioned. The Jag (XKE) is my dream car from when I was growing up.
