    Hello gentlemen. There is something new to report (after a long long time) about the air inlet in front of the windshield and about the wooden frame.

    At the original car the door cutout wooden part is only one piece. In my 540K three pieces because of the cross struts.

    All finished wooden parts at the moment.
    Thanks for looking. Markus

    Glad you're back! Your wood parts are real nice. Compromises are often needed with scale models.

    Do you know there are chrome plates in the door edge, you can get thin stainless steel plates.

    On this picture you can see the new back. It is not perfect but much better than the old one.
    Thanks for looking. Markus

    Yes, excellent work! Do you seal the wood to limit the seasonal changes of moisture content or is it not an issue?

    Thanks Don. I adhere some parts with wood adhesive, some are screwed like the real car. I will not adhere the wood to the brass/ copper. After all it is a custom- fit complex construction.
