Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing by Tamiya 1:24 scale
Posted by BuildingCars4Fun on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 11:30 PM

My first build and the one that quickly got me hooked on this new hobby. 

Learning all the time - for this build I had no airbursh, nothing beyond some glue, paint brushes and a can of silver spray paint. I glued on the first decal...

Came out looking motvatingly decent.

That is a very nice-looking model. Nice work. Yes

I glued on the first decal...

And that is the funniest darned thing. Smile

At the risk of making this about me, I haven't built anything with four wheels since probably the 60's (shhhhhh), and your post has me wanting to build one of these. If it's still available, that is.

Thanks for sharing this one.

Very nice build! The interior shot looks like the real 1/1 car. Nice photo work too.

I think you're off to a good start.  Really nice work.  Looking forward to more of your builds. 

Just keep picking away at it...
