The rear wheel isn't looking good. Front ones are OK. Will it be possible to fabricate some kind of spacers?

hey cyrus43 the pics look great and ya the beamer which you painted in matte black does look really hot. and i do agree that you do need spacers for your cls as even the previous wheels were not as much inside as these ones. Nevertheless great job bro! cheers:

Default Plastic kits.

Cheers
I have the same Bugatti 1:18 scale from Bburago.
I am posting some pics of two interesting plastic kits . The Tamiya, British SAS Willys MB WW2 1:35 in Weathered Desert Camo (lot of effort with paints and clear) and
an Italeri Willys MB with Trailer 1:35. which I assembled a couple of years ago.

Hey great paintjob Dussey. I can imagine the amount of effort gone into those Jeeps. But looks worth your while though.

@Cyrus43: The M5 looks great now Good job. The matt paintjob is killer. Do some BMW roundels though.
