Mercedes-Benz 200, W123 [Part III] . So finally I found the time to redo the hood. I enlarged it back to the right length and made it more or less studless. Now the hood is inline with the rest of the car. . So finally I found the time to redo the hood. I enlarged it back to the right length and made it more or less studless. Now the hood is inline with the rest of the car. Due to the fact that I can't show a lot of progress this time I thought to add one of my crown pieces to the shoot. They are actually from the same period. The W123 is release in 1976 and the Lego Model 956 is released in 1978. However now I have the bonnet correct, I still struggle with the form of the front piece in general, I am still not satisfied. I even consider to tear the front down and start all over again with different technique and way of building. Besides the front I am still fighting with the grill as well. The real grill has several horizontal lines and one vertical in the middle. Offline I tried a lot of different configurations but didn't find a satifying one till now. So another battlefield to win. On request I quickly added some headlights. I used yellow for the 2 outer ones. (I just don't have 4 transparant ones :-)). Anyhow it improves the front tremedously to my opinion. And I added a hood ornament. When the car is finished I will glue together a steering wheel from miniland with a round one stud plate and get it painted silver. For now I leave it like it is. In 3 weeks time I have summer holidays and then I will work on the front and back train, engine and interior.
