1932 Maybach DS8 'Zeppelin'
About this creation
My entry for Dan the Man's 7th Car Contest: German Cars. Hope I stand some chance with this car...


Build in scale 1/14, with really helpful advice from MortalSwordsman.





















The 'problem' with these old cars is the shape. Think it didn't turn out that bad.


















The opening hood. Probably the hardest part of the front was to let the hood open AND maintain the right shape.

Lovely shape. The gap behind the doors is a bit annoying, but the rest of the car more than makes up for that :) The full studded body and the opening bonnet are very nice touches. 5/5

Man, that is awesome! The thing I like best about it is the scale, perfect choice of wheels, those are my favorite tires too, and the detail while still staying true to classic brick lineage, masterpiece!

Hi Thomas. I just had to come back for a second look. This really is an absolute beauty - congrats. Thank you for the mention there was really no need but I am honoured that you did :). Good luck in DTM's contest. I have a sneaky feeling that he really likes it ;)

An all round 5 star car : ) Excellent build quality, really accurate looks and nice opening features too (inc. that lovely side opening bonnet). The only bit I'm not sure about is the gap behind the doors. Your best creation yet - and one of the nicest vintage cars on MOCpages. 10/10, well done T.G!

Wow! Great shaping and great functions. The working front hood is awesome! I agree with Dan: Your best car, so far. Great job!

Wow ! This, to me, is your best car yet ! Nice also to see another good old vintage car on here. I did a drawing of these a little while back (http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=maybach+zeppelin#/d2k5siy) It is a different shape to get used to; I've made three old cars in this style so far - but you get used to making different shapes. It looks like you've made this similarly to my Bugatti model; though your opening bonnet is way cooler - it doesn't actually open, but just lifts off on my Bugatti, and on the huge white roadster, it just opens straight at the hinge without folding in two, like most old ones did. Great model, keep up the good work :) - Dan

Definitely my personal favorite of all your mocs so far. You did a great job with the wheel arches, and the opening hood is fantastic. The shape is spot on, which is often hard to replicate because of all the curves. The full studded look also adds to the oldtimey look of the car :] 5/5! By the way, I recently also built a car from around the same time, i would really appreciate it if you took the time to check it out, thanks!
