    Nice wood part!
    You are doing your model the wrong way. At the factory, the wood work was first done and then the sheet metal was attach to it. Therefore, they had no problem with the frame for the dash in one piece!
    How are you doing to have the brasss parts still shiny after that rather long time?

    Thanks Roger! It is not the wrong way, it is my way. I know the factory way but you know that you can`t build a modelcar 100% the same way as a real car. I clean the brass parts with steel wool Mercedes Benz 540 K Spezial Roadster 1/8 , that`s it. Markus

    In fact, unless I had the blueprints to do the wood work first, I would build that model the same way than you!

    very nice work markus chapeau........

    When reading the last two postings of Markus and Roger anyone can have the opinion:
    MODELCAR BUILDERS are always little FRANK SINATRAs
    because they always say to themselves

    ....... I DID IT MY WAY

    Yes Freddy! That's the advantage in modeling: each can do it its way!
