Mercedes-Benz 200, w123 [Part II] . This is my Mercedes-Benz W123 project. I am currently busy finishing and finetuning the sedan. Finally I will develop the Touring and Coupe version as well. . Finally after a year I had the time to make a next round on my Mercedes-Benz. In the last months I did thinkabout possible ways to improve and how to go on with my project. In the last year I counted parts and ordered missing pieces. So now I have enough parts for the comming months to go on. Anyway what really bothers me still is the front part. It is still not to my satisfaction. This caused me to work on the back part ad now working myself to the front. What gives me time to think the front part through and work on alternatives. What pleases me is that I managed to replace all discolored and wrong color parts. So for the back part I managed to get the hood changed to a moving one. It is not with the efficient construction Mercedes invented because I couldn't find the right small pieces to recreate it. Anyway this construction satisfies me as well. I also finished the part just behind the back seat, don't know what this is called in english. What I didn't realize is that if you want to make it studless it costs a lot of design time if you don't want to have the model to heavy on the parts. On the other hand that makes it more fun as well. I decided to design a brown interior. It took me a while with help of bricklink.com to find the pieces available in brown and where to get them. After that it took me several design rounds with LDD to get the seating as close as possible to the real ones. The real ones are quite heavily shaped. But again managed to get it to my satisfaction an nearly studless. I left a few studs to follow the intended shape more closely.
