Hey, that's a cool old kit. I was always curious about this one ever since I was a kid, but have never seen one in person. It's good to get a chance to check it out.

No worries Trevor.Big Smile

re the salt trick,it is an old armour trick,you apply the base coat - in this case steel apply salt to the damp surface then let it dry and then apply a second different colour.

Once cured just chip the salty areas off to reveal the base colour.(like this)

Anybody know the back story on this car? Looks like a modified 500 or 540 benz. Trainwreck.

Cool stuff, Nigel. I an really intrigued by the hot rodding opportunities of this kit. If I ever see this around for a decent price I may just have to pick one up.

Did the skeletons,first of all Herr Rommel.

 

Followed by Herr Dumkofz.

Looks like he is on the bottle here - probably knew what was coming...
