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.
About this creation



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.

Excellent! The doors are particularly nice, but the front grille and headlights are nothing short of spectacular! Very nice work mate :-)

I have to say a masterpiece of bodywork building. Some of it I honestly don't know how you have done. Can't wait for the Merc estate (one of my favourite cars)

See what I can do about the headlights. I have some ideas in mind but, currently busy with the bonnet it turns out too short. About the grill I am constantly trying different techniques to get it more realistic but till now no satisfying result. So if you or someone else has a suggestion feel free.
Quoting Joost Cumps I like this one. I can't wait to see your version of the estate. If I can suggest some idea's on the fornt part: can you put something behind the head lights, it would make them more realistic. Your grill is very beautiful also, but the mercedes has two horizontal lines and also one veetical in it, not to mention the thing (star) on top. But these are all details, You already did amazing things...

Quoting Jarek Wjcik As Ben has said- needs hood ornament. Also- it seems to me You've shortened the front compared to V1. Looks too short now. Other than that- perfect. Love the car, both lego and real versions:D
Hi Jarek, thanks for your comment. At first I was annoyed, measured it every half hour, you know. But never harm to measure again. You are RIGHT in all my enthousiasm I lost more than 2cm on the hood. Don't know when that happened. I was building it up from the back though, so a few consessions here and there and I lost 2cm!!! Thanks for your hint?

This is great. I have the real version my self '83 300D and this model looks VERY promising. Keep it up. It will take a while because the W123 is quite hard to model in large scale Lego.
