I'm not a car-builder but I falled in love with that one  :-love
Incredible speed of 15 km/h, tricycle, mix of wood and steel... A beauty !

At 1/24th scale, that car is not greater than a 1/72 medium tank  :))
ICM realized two boxes of that kit : an "easy build" one with plastic wheels ; and a more realistic one with photoetched parts

I assembled the seat in first. Perfect plastic putty needed between the two parts, for a perfect result

Before to go further, I builded the wheels. Why now ? Just because if I have failed to have nice wheels, I would not have made too much work for nothing  :-green

ICM created an useful tool to bend the photoetched parts ; I'm really happy with the result

On a white base, I've airbrushed Tamiya XF-60 then applied oil paint Mars Brown. Now, I've to wait that the oil becomes dry...

Other parts were also "wood" painted and the half wheels were airbrushed in black. To be noted the presence of elements of other kits/figures on my plank...

Well, ICM realized 3 boxings of the Benz: First is the Benz with plastic spoked wheels, the second is the vehicle with PE wheels (this is the kit I've chosen) and the third is with PE wheels and figures of mrs Benz and her two sons.
