"Rommel┬Ęs Lost Surf Rod"

1:72 Hasegawa Mercedes Benz G4 / W31......hand brushed with MM-acryls.....

Great looking model.  At least we know they got plenty of use in the sand, so it would be fine hitting the beach.

You left the bonnet on! I don't care if there is nothing under there and it's molded on, it's not a rat rod if it has a bonnet! Surely there is a resin engine in that size which would fit if you forced it... like a DB aero engine out of a 109...
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

That is some excellent work you have done there, the weathering is spot on :thumbsup: And in such a small scale too  :bow:.
I wonder if you can get weird fish and sex wax stickers in 1/72nd scale, to stick on the boot lid  :rolleyes: :lol:
Cheers,
Chris.

I named it a "surf rod" not a rat rod !!!!!!
But I like yours idea with 1:72 DB- engine.....

Yes, hello?  I'd like to sign up for your "Weathering" class, please!  Would be incredible workmanship if this was 1:35...but at this scale, I'd have to call it nothing short of miraculous workmanship.  I'm in awe...   :bow:
