Mercedes-Benz 540K W24

Ever since I’ve the One Ring from the LEGO Of The Rings sets, I wanted to use is as a bonnet emblem. Once I won the from Gollum, I decided to go for an beautiful car from early of motorization: Mercedes-Benz 540K in the Roadster version.

The Mercedes-Benz was first shown at 1936 Motor Show, in several variants, and with a great of customization options available for times when cars manufactured manually by skilled rather than using an line). Despite the fact it was created just a few decades invention of the car, its look, its and the luxury it offered can still pretty much any car. Its wasn’t left behind: the beautifully crafted  bonnet, was a 115 HP engine and a supercharger that increase that power to 180 HP for periods of time, allowing top of 170 km/h. There was a 580K of the car in the working, with the engine for greater power, but its production was with the outbreak of World War II.

Sometimes, when testing car in the tunnel, a power of 180 horses and 1 was achieved.

The model was actually of a leisure build after and tenuous work on my Tumbler model. Moreover, it was an interesting to see if it could top my very similar of the Morgan car  built nearly years earlier. It was very mechanically, with no suspension – as the look of the model was my top priority – and the rear axle’s differential by a single PF L motor with no reduction. The front axle was by a PF Servo motor, which was connected to the steering wheel. this motor negated the for any substantial gear reduction

and for limiting the steering lock, providing a return-to-center function. It was to see how well a single, ungeared L handles this not exactly model. The model proved the L motor’s inner gear is probably minimal, because it was easy to backdrive it, and the model was affected by inertia when to the point where it was almost to brake with the motor. all that, the model was surprisingly which shows that the L is a very interesting alternative for the bigger XL motor.

The look of the model was not modeled any particular version of the Super (which vary a lot due to the aforementioned options), but rather combined from several versions caught my attention. There was a of elements I did not particularly like, as the pieces holding the windshield, the line of the front fenders, the line of the rear mudguards, the on top of the trunk and the lack of chrome on the trunk, but all in all, the model out looking much better I anticipated. It was great fun to drive it its simplicity, especially with a behind the steering wheel. The thing I really regretted is the of LEGO whitewall

tires, and the difficulty in trying to some. I have experimented paint and stickers, but to no avail.
