Re: Heller 1/24 Mercedes-Benz 500K

They all look beautiful! Was one better than the other to build or did they both have strengths/weaknesses that pretty much equaled out?

Re: Heller 1/24 Mercedes-Benz 500K

Thanks for comments
Jo-han 500K was nice
but Heller 500K was tough kit...
Body parts are separated in pieces. Fitting is horrible.

Beautiful work. The red one looks just like the one I saw at the Mercedes museum in Stuttgart last summer.

Re: Heller 1/24 Mercedes-Benz 500K

Absolutely stunning models Baracca! Superb looking Mercedes, one of the nicest prewar beauty! You've done a fantastic job on these kits! Congratulation!
Do you have some work in progress photos? I think, all of us would be happy if you could share some "secrets",of the way you built these beauties.

Re: Heller 1/24 Mercedes-Benz 500K

I think the Mercedes-Benz 500K is the most beautiful car of all time. And your models are the most detailed I've seen in this scale.
