I finished the ICM "Taxi de la Marne". I was not happy with every detail, but the final result is OK.

I have built and painted the model in four blocks, the chassis, the fender and the body. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the fourth block, the soft top. I recommend gluing the two soft top parts together and painting it as one piece.

For the chassis, as shown in steps 29 + 30, just remove this pin to be able to put the chassis and fender together after painting.

For the interior of the cabin I have found a nice video on YouTub from the "Musee Automobile Reims" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WHk1NmXhpM

But finally you will not see a lot of the interior through the windows. I added the brown panel on the inside of the door and the belt to lift the window.

And this is the finished model.

Thank you for whatching, Alfred

That looks really nice. I'm assuming that it's 1/35?

That's a really nice little build. Well done.
Whish ICM would make one in 1/24.

Now that's one outstanding build for sure. Excellent job on the paint finish as it's a mile deep shine.
