There was a lot of hours of work to get it to a paintable level. I had to open up all scoopp and air extractosrs plus the grille opening.

One of God's own prototypes
Some sort of strange mutant-
Never considered for mass production-
Too wierd to live-
Too rare to die

I just finished this one. It was an extensive projet using a bad resin body and a Monogram Mercedes SLR 722 kit.

This car with 2 other competed in the World Driver Championship in early 50's. This car has an inline 8 with fuel injection.

It took me a year to finish it. There was so many problems with it that I had to lay it on theshelf from time to time, just to convince myself to do it. I am very happy with the result. Here it is
