    Mercedes SLS - Brabus Version

    Post  el manolo on Mon Apr 22, 2013 10:43 pm

    My next build is the SLS Brabus version. The main model is Revell while the transkit is from Hobby Design:



    The real car comes with a twin turbo engine, generating 700bhp. To give the SLS also a sportier appearance the BRABUS WIDESTAR wide-body version was developed in the wind tunnel. Like in Formula 1 racing all aerodynamic-enhancement components are manufactured from lightweight yet high-strength carbon-fiber compounds. The body components can be painted in body or contrasting color or finished with a clear coat for a purebred racing look.

    After the second coat it still needs putty and more sanding:
