Thumbs up Re: Stunning DIY : A scale replica of the 1886 Benz Motorwagen

As mentioned, the attention to detail is just mind blowing! Scale models of new cars even dont have such true-ness. Its almost as of the person had the original car standing next to him while designing this replica. I just salute the effort that has gone into this....

This should reach to Mercedes!!

They can install it as a showpiece at their plant.

And the maker should be gifted the limited edition E-class for this commendable work!

Brilliant work!! The man has a gift of true passion and great attention to detail.
I was wondering if MB has come across this yet, and if they would consider putting this creation and a review of it and the original, up in one of their newsletters.
Once again simply outstanding work.
