Great stuff. And the Stingray looks better as a gullwing than the 300 SL ever did!

Hi all, here is what you get for the coil springs in this kit,

after hunting through my springs collection I found these

I'm a bit disappointed they don't show up more

Am very glad you're improving on the kit. From the looks, the mostly chrome engine area isn't that great, but the work on the interior (center console clock? dial impressive) is really tasteful. Opening the doors adds to the look. I believe there's still a large scale model forum on the web too.

Here is another update on this one.
I'm wondering (since I've made it gull wing) should I do away with the door handles move them further down or turn them sideways.

Hi all been adding some detail from all the reference pics I've got they all show this with servo assisted breaks, this is what the kit supplies

So I acquired this off my missus favorite tipple (she is Scottish)

After a little sanding and a crease in the right place



I've no idea where a lot of these pipes go as I've not got enough ref pics so I've guesstimated

Using a liquor bottle cap is truly inspired and the result is awesome!

It never ceases to amaze me the knock on effects changing something on a kit, the doors are causing all sorts of problems first when I did the door shuts I couldn't open the doors because the corner of the firewall stopped it so I had to undo it then cut the corner of the door panels off to clear it then ( after I'd glued the windows in) I discovered (since they were designed for fixed doors they wrapped round the sides and included the side windows therefore preventing the doors from shutting, grrr)

I mentioned I'd already glued them in didn't I, well normally revells glue for clear plastic comes unglued fairly easily (in fact I've had windows fall out at the slightest touch) do you think this would come off, no stuck like a limpet so I had to cut the side window bits off with the window installed (not easy I can tell you.
