Completed the model of a 1935 mercedes-benz 500k roadster today, subsitute teaching got in the way for most of the last week. Was not completely happy with some of the proportions but doesn’t look too bad I think. Making and mounting the headlights from what I learned on my last model went OK, The challenge on this model was turning and mounting the horns as they where quite small. I really liked the lines of the pictures of this car, sweeping fenders and front axle ahead the radiator. That made some interesting challenge making the fenders blend in. My bumper ended up to low but that can be rebuilt. Thanks for looking and I appreciate the comments. I think my wife thinks I have spent enough time on models, its been fun but I do need to get on to other things.
