Mission completed, and so it is indeed a May-bach :P Four days of "glueing" led to a nervous tremor, so I really need some relaxing in the garden (didn't notice that summer has already begun... :o ). As always, a couple of preview shots in advance:

The big photo session will be made on Wednesday or Thursday, feel invited!

Lovely. In the end the PE compliments the paintwork nicely.

Wow, Jean I'm really speechless. I love the color. The details are fantastic - the grill, the steering wheel and of course, the amasing dash (that wood panel and color of the gauges) and suitcases - really beautiful :) 8-)

Thanks! It really looks very convincing...

Isn't it? :P I'm glad when the effect is to be seen on the photos!

Such a "baroque" car gives a nice result! I mixed two-component adhesive for nearly 300 times, but the result is worth the effort, I guess... :)

Awesome rework Jean,
Your workmanship and skill set new standards with virtually every new modeling recreation. :D
This one merits a double BRAVO! - BRAVO!
Cheers and Happy Collecting,

Thank you! And - even if it's immodest :oops: - I have to admit that I'm quite proud about that interior. I don't know, although I've used the same techniques as with the previous models, this time everything turned out better. Perhaps due to the green pills I took? :mrgreen:

And a double thank you in return! :) It was a quite difficult model, as no part fitted to the other and TinWizard made the awkwardly restored version of the car. On the other hand it was a very detailed kit and offered many possibilities to enhance all details. So this in combination seems to have led me to new horizons ;)

Today the Maybach found its new home:

...and after having tidied up my workshop (you won't believe what's left after a such a build :roll: ), the next project already started. The diorama shots of the Maybach and the Horch suggest that there is one certain type still missing...

Really cool Jean! I didn't know you also fancied race cars.

The Maybach looks right at home Jean.

Its nice the way just about every one of your creations has a different colour. I'm not sure of that's deliberate, or if its just the way its worked out due to the colours of the originals. Either way it makes for an interesting and varied collection.

I've already thrown away my TV set 'cause I meanwhile only sit in front of my showcase (when not building in the dungeon ;) )
LUW wrote:Really cool Jean! I didn't know you also fancied race cars.
Not really. These are remains of my occupation with Bugatti, there I bought some model cars without thinking of a real collection. Now they are in my showcase, but I don't buy any race cars anymore.

In fact I consider each car on its own to find out the "right" colour, independent of the others. On the other hand, I try to avoid the "standard" colours (white, black, red, silver, dark blue), as they are so ordinary :oops: . Trying to resemble original cars, I always try to find out which colours the cars really had at that time, and if there are only b/w photos, I consider in which context the car stood and what this would mean for the painting.
