Mercedes Benz 540K Cabriolet B (mod.1936) Italeri 1/24

 Hello again dear friends. One more model that I finished earlier in 2015  - This year was very "creative" for me :) - The legendary Mercedes Benz 540K Cabriolet B 1936 model by Italeri in 1/24.

Few words about the real car

Introduced at the 1936 Paris Motor Show, the Friedrich Geiger designed car was a development to the 500K, itself a development of the SSK. Available as a two seater cabriolet, four seater coupé or seven seater limousine with armoured sides and armoured glass, it was one of the largest cars of the time.

JAGUAR XKR GT3 Airfix 1/32

 One of the last model kit that I finished in 2015 is the Jaguar XKR GT3 version in 1/32 by Airfix.

Few words about the real car

 Jaguar  has decide to race in the FIA GT3championship with a powerfull version of XKR against Ferrari, Ford, Porsche and BMW. The XKR is powered by a 510bhp 4.2lt supercharged V8 engine. The huge rear wing and the front splitter enable the Jaguar to generate massive down force so the XKR can corner at speeds far in excess of standard road version.
