Don't worry about your English as we like to let good photos of good models do the talking and that is a very good looking build.

I really like the look of these, despite the funny looking headlights. When I eventually stop building and finishing my old old old model kits, this is one that I'll pick up myself and like you, will probably finish it it in a grey/gun-metal of some sort.

Thanks for the reply. I 'll fix the headlights issue once I found a proper adhesive.

Re: 1/24 Aoshima Mercedes SL65 black series

oh, actually, I wasn't talking about your build.
I meant that I find the design of the headlights on the car a little funny looking compared to the rest of the car. I much prefer the old double elipse of the old SL55 or the trapezoid of the CL65.

I always have trouble getting complex headlights to sit properly on my builds too.

Oh I see, but the headlights issue apparently needs to be fixed.

By the way, I really think that the new C-class's headlamp looks really similar to this SL65 one.
