      Just started the build on my Mercedes 540k Roadster. I think I now have all the after market parts I wanted from model motorcars Pocher 540k roadster and Pocher Upgrades as well as some 3d printed parts I did myself. I have improoved the inlet and exhaust manifold, the air filter, the carbureta inlet plate and the fuel filters as well as producing a set of wire wheels that are a vast improvement on the plastic ones in the box. Well at least mine have 3 rows of 28 spokes and they are round. To see a video of the moving pistons and crank shaft follow this link

      Due to the absence of Scale Model Cars I have not been able to update this thread for some time. The model is now complete and a selection of

      photographs have been added to show construction phases and the completed Model. A video will be completed shortly. Thanks to Model Motorcars Pocher 540k roadster Ltd.
      On to the next one now, probably the Rolls Royce Sedanica or the Alpha Romeo.

    Looks like you're off to a good start! My Benz has been on hold for three years now, but I will resurrect it shortly!
    Good luck.

    Engine now completed and looks pretty good. The Pocher engine as supplied in the kit is incorrect for the 540k (apparently0 as detailed in Marvin Meit's and David Cox's books available from model motorcars Pocher 540k roadster . com. I have 3d printed the modified exhaust and inlet manifold, the air breather, the oil scraper and the carburettor inlet plate. The fuel pump has been moved to the correct side of the engine and new 3d printed fuel filters added, The plumbing Pocher 540k roadster and throttle linkages are interpreted from whatever photographs I could source and are probably a mixture of several cars so I can't swear to the absolute correctness but I think its probably about right. The ignition wire and the ignition harness tube are by model motorcars Pocher 540k roadster as are the additional gear box / throttle linkages. Now to start on the Chassis.
