    Welcom to our forum, the frame looks very fine, if your using the Pocher kit for the body is there some difference on the 540 special, smaller doors and longer hood, Modelmotorcars Mercedes Benz 540 K Spezial Roadster 1/8 .com have a CD with the way to build the correct 540 Special body, I have one myself to convert sometime.
    There are some build here in SMC you can look at.
    Looking forward to see what you can do.

    Very clean work Markus! How do you clean the parts after soldering, especially the corners and edges?

    Hi. Thanks. I`m cleaning the parts with steel wool Mercedes Benz 540 K Spezial Roadster 1/8 and/or sandpaper. Sometimes it takes up a lot of time but the result is important for me. Now some more pics. PS: Hi Mark-usMercedes Benz 540 K Spezial Roadster 1/8-56-2-jpg

    I really hope he isn't, because, let's be honest, the shape of the bodies on those Pocher 540Ks really isn't that great, which is a shame because that shape is one of the things that makes the originals such worthy subjects in the first place.

    Superb work Marcus, just superb
    The wooden 'buck' is just as well made as the brass work
    I can see in a few pictures how skilled, detail oriented and organized you are in your work
    Very nice!!!!
