Wow, what a beauty.

The wheels & the chain are really the icing on the cake - beautiful work, it could easily pass as 1/4 not 1/24... There is no way to hide the smallest mistake on a build like this, so you simple did not make one... 👍

Now, we need to see the AMG-version!😉

Thank you Palo and Slavo!
Slavo, of course there are mistakes, I can present them to you, if we have a chance to see us in person. I think a build without mistakes is a oxymoron😉
Oh yeah, a tuned AMG version with a two-cylinder, to double the speed to 32km/h 👍

I'm sure they'd except it.
I'm sure that your wife is a lovely person but myself I wouldn't trust anyone after I've died to follow any of my wishes.
I wouldn't trust that it wouldn't end up thrown out just for the sake of convenience.
I was a Sexton for ten years and I have plenty of experience of the wishes of the deceased being ignored.
Problem is once you've dead you no longer have a say in anything

Thx Matthew! That is not really a car, so I could use my biplane building know how😉

I just saw this thing in the recent ModelFan issue - yours looks better, particularly the wood 🙂

Thx Slavo, that is a praise! I checked it online and found a small picture on the title. None of my models are in a print magazine.

I am very pleased to report that this model was awarded a gold medal at the competition during the exhibition in Ried last weekend.
It could not have gone better for me: three models - three gold medals 😉 Thank you very much!

Three entries = three golds. Another day in the office… 😄

But seriously, congratulations. Your work is top notch, and thank you again for sharing it here.

Thank you very much mates for leaving such nice comments or click on Like. Much appreciated!
Perhaps it is an advantage to be a WWI biplane modeller when it comes to wood painting as it is not so common on cars.

Kerry COX
Buggs. I can vouch for the wood look painting is not that easy. But it was fun. 🙂

This car is missing some propper Rallye trim and a rollcage...

just kidding 😉 Outstanding work mate! Very impressive!

Thank you mates! Attached to the project is also a Work In Progress album, i case you like to see it.

Rod -
I have actually worked on a real one of these. I'm an automotive machinist by trade, and I used to work for a company that specialized in vintage engine restorations. The crankshaft and big end had little spring loaded grease pots on them for lubrication.
Your model looks very good 🙂

Thank you Rod!
Attached to the kit here in Scalemates is a link to a nice walkaround. I think it is a replica, but I used this as template in it's nice dark green. The kit is great, only the lower part of the belt and axle assembly seems to be simplified.

Thank you mates!
Special thanks to Roland for persuading me to participate as an exhibitor after all! Will you be successful next year in demanding a separate category for my models? I think I will be there on 15./16 October 2022 👍

Thank you very much mates!
After the contest I notices a little problem on one wheel hub, I guess transportation damage. So if one wheel is not aligned on your pictures - this was not intended 😉 I hope I can fix this easily.
I would also like to say a big thank you to my wife for her constant support 👍
29 March, 15:58

Indeed a well deserved recognition 👍

Thank you mates!
Because of Corona there was no classical award ceremony. It's a pity, so you couldn't see the builders of the models. I hope there will be some official results soon.

@bughunter
Yepp....I agree with that.Very sad there wasn't a regular ceremony.I like to see the builders ,too.
