​Hello and happy new Year to All ! I started with the last Car, Matchbox Mercedes benz SSKL. Its a nice little Kit, but it has serveral Flaws and Errors. first for the MM Car there are too much Holes in the Frame. the Box on the Passenger Side is way too small, and the 3 Tubes ? are completly worthless. The real Car has a 3poninted Jerrycan and 2 Carjacks there. Also the Frontaxle is wrongshaped, the Brakedrums lack any Details, the rear ones are Part of the Rims also. So first i get out the greenstuff Putty to close the uneccessary Holes. then i put on a thin Wire around the front Leaf Springs and also a bit putty . this is to imitate the Fabric that was around them on the real Car. Then i made new Brakedrums with a circular cutter and out of brasstube, Pins
and a bit Plastic the newe Dampers. Also scratched the whole Steering with parts from a Tank and thin soldering wire.

Although the original models are excellent, it's always a pleasure to see the many details that you add with such care and precision, Challenger77. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Well done! :yeah:

And another detail is nearly done, the Geralever and the handbrake. Matchbox made two crude Plasticsticks,that comes out of the Floorpan. On the real Cars, the Gerarboxtop isn't covered , you can see this relativly clear. I build this Feature witha small Plasticplate, some Nuts from aTankkit, the underside of Matchbox' Gearlever, Evergreen profile, my "loved" Clothpins , Brasstube and Rod, and a bitTinfoil. The later is a bit too big, i will cut this down a bit.
Here is a Studioshot , around 1931 and two pics how it looks on a restaurated SSK/SSKL.

And that is my Try, think its look okay.

After all this very tiny Parts, i added one more and also very very small but clearly visible. The front Crossmember with integrated Lamppost and starter crank support. Matchbox done this as a Rod witha crude ring on it, simple and wrong. So one more Time done with 2 Parts from a tank, Brasstube/Rod and a bit Plastic.
Left one is the new Build, right the original matchbox.
