Mercedes-Benz 300 SL


The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL was the ancestor of the kind of car that would become known as the supercar. Racing-car derived underpinnings defined its shape, the canted over straight-six engine allowed a very low bonnet line and the complex tubular chassis meant huge sills. These large, awkward to negotiate sills gave the 300 SL its main feature – those gull-wing doors. This was a really tricky build, the 62361 mudguards at 6-long made the corners in particular quite fun to resolve and replicating the sill trim as only a bracket thickness made for some challenging internal structures. No, you can’t fit a minifig inside 🙂 Follow me on Instagram and my website
