Cool Miniart Mercedes-Benz Type 170V

Thanks to help from a friend-modeller a got a new Miniart Mercedes-Benz 170V model. It`s fantastic. And I got it for a real low price. So, I`ve almost finished the engine. Here how it looks:







The chassis frame is really good because it is made in one piece, but there are quite a lot a mould seems on it, which you have to clean thoroughly. Miniart also provides comparably the best springs I ever seen moulded in plastic...



But as I only thought about cleaning them up, I decided that it would take less effort to make them out of wire.

Glad that you`ve liked it. Here is how the wheel looks. Its really nice moulded and minimum cleanup is needed to make it look good

Those wheels are much better than the ones provided in the MB kit which I have built. I am hoping Hussar comes out with some replacements so I can sh-tcan the ones I have.
