Saltlake Racer DS62

I just love old school race mobiles like the Mercedes-Benz W196R, the Auto Union Silver Arrow and the Auto Union Type C V16 Streamliner. All these cars are awesome silver classic birds and I would love to have one. 
So.... I  build my own just like that. =)

I had to grab some of the nicest parts from several different kits to create my own classic bird. Parts from a 1:350 scale HMS Eskimo, 1:48 Messerschmitt 110, 1:32 resin Douglas Dauntless seat, 1:35 AB 41 & Sdkfz 222 wheels, 1:35 Sdkfz 250 and many small parts from the spare box were used for this build. 

Since this car would be a Silver one it received a gloss black primer and several layers of Alclad II polished chrome. No fast car without a fast driver so I recruited a 1/32 German driver from Kellerkind Miniaturen.
