Wow
never thought that someone will actually go through the trouble of creating something like this.
It would be really interesting to see it in real life.
Thanks a lot for the link

a 300SL looks good even in wood,.. the attached is a similar effort made from automotive scrap, looking closely you can make out old bearings, pinions, springs and even Honda brake pads!
