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

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

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

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
