Hello
Just slipping in under the wire for 2017 is my final build for the year - the Revell 300SLR "Uhlenhaut Coupe".
I wanted to get this in for this year so just a couple of pics right now - I will post some more (better quality ones!) tomorrow when I will have a tad more time on my hands - for now, I've have an appointment with a few drinkies and general NYE festivities so, until then, a very Happy New Year to you all!!

Well those festivities went rather too well so photography was not really on the agenda yesterday!
Anyway, pulled myself together today and so here are a few better shots.
But first, a quick summary of the build:
Largely OOB with some detailing in the engine area (eg bits of wiring and re-plumbed the fuel injection lines) and Little-Cars lenses for the headlights. Painted with Halfords aerosol Merc Silver acrylic and clear lacquer. Dead easy to use so will no doubt re-visit this method some time soon as I was having a hell of a time getting a silver down onto the body - I felt there was something weird about the plastic but it may have just been my ham-fistedness - oh, and it takes a great polish as well!
Anyway. enough waffle, here she is - hope you like.
C+C welcome as ever!

Thanks Nick - fairly pleased with it as it seemed to fight me all the way, this one!
