    Wish they would ship to Australia. I even arranged for them to ship to local address DHL who would complete all paper work they still wouldn’t ship

    I don't need another project, yet, but if I did this would be it. Maybe in a year or so.

    I decided to go for it. Unfortunately they are on back order so while I wait for the castings I decided to draw up a 1/3 scale wagon to fit the engine to. There is a huge amount of info on the web but not too much in the way of useful drawings. There seem to be a few variations with various reproductions and Mercedes aren't very forthcoming with info. Nevertheless this is the story so far. I wont hijack this thread any more and when I start the project proper I will start a new thread.

    Great job. You are more advanced with your build than I imagined. I haven't seen the old photo before. There is a bit of detail there that really helps. Thanks.

    Wonderful job. I can't wait to see it running.
    I am still waiting for news on the castings. Extremely grateful to Torsten for sending me the drawings while I am waiting.
