Or in English. "General, your car is ready" ICM's Opel Admiral. Several issues over the build, see the WIP thread if you're burning to know.
I didn't like the folded top, it stuck up like a country dunny, so I've shaped some plastic, covered it with tissue & paint.

Period is 1940-1, when the war was going well for the Germans, and this is a senior Luftwaffe officer's staff car, somewhere in France.
Lightly weathered to reflect a muddy perimeter track on an airfield.

Well done. Looks like a Chevy 6 under the hood.

Thanks MP, the Chev, Opel, and Holden 6s look very similar.

Ha! I'm going to blame the google/ whatever translator I used. Don't tell me I just offered to buy someones daughter?
My German comes from panzer & luftwaffe model instructions, and the odd(ahem) 'adult' movie: "Das ist gut, das ist fantastich" or similar!
