Wonderful work in progress to follow. BTW the comments on the bolt colors are interesting. I worked for Porsche and Mercedes-Benz in the 70's, 80's and 90's. Parts Manager. The bolts and nuts were referred to as Cad plated or Cadmium. I think they are still used and available for the 1/1 cars.

That dashboard is a masterpiece, truly a model of it's own! But that you can say about the drivetrain as well, as well as the suspension etc....
Only thing is, it looks very much slanted upwards (the dials), but that might be because of the test fitting only.

Superb Uli, i even can read the VDO bagde on the instruments, truely impressing!
I love the research side of these jobs too, it`s like sinking into the construction of a car and understanding the technical side to reset everything and bring it to scale. Sometimes it can take a while till you have a good collection of datas, references and what else is needed to start such a project, i only can imagine how nuch effort you put in this part of modeling before even unboxing the kit itself, then taking all mesurements to make parts fit and all the design chapter for the new parts, realy realy impressing how far yo covered all that details!

.....LIKE IT!!! :D

Guido, I agree, this is beautiful. Uli, I think I missed a few of these updates...must have been the heat. The dashboard is special, watching the progress is even more interesting. It’s inspirational.

Hi there, little progress made since my last post due to "summer break". Nevertheless a small update during the "saure Gurkenzeit/sour cucumber time" as we say in Germany :-)

First and foremost, many thanks for your nice comments and Felix, as you've correctly noticed, the dashboard was slanted to much upwards during the testfit as the assembly was not yet glued in place. When glued in place, it will have the correct position.

The dashboard is completely finished now, including the steering wheel and ready for installation

This picture provides an overview about the individual parts (only 3 MFH kit parts used, the rest is new)


... likewise an overview about parts used for the steering wheel (100% new parts)


some pictures about building the steering wheel including mounting device




Also started to build the driver seat ...

... modified seat frame



Next is to paint and upholster the seat and to "laminate" it to the frame.

Thanks for watching !

With every new post it is anticipation what he will show us. And it knocks my socks off. The attention to detail and what is actually possible inspires me every time anew. Very good work.
