I just picked up a Marui (Tilt) Mercedes G4 6-wheeled Nazi staff car for the incredible price of CDN$9.95 at my local hobby store, The Hobby House in Ottawa. It was (barely) started and is missing only the driver figure. I've had to uninstall the motorisation gimmick and am in the process of evaluating what will be needed to bring it up to snuff. Faust has an OOB of the kit on his site ( Marui 1/35 Mercedes-Benz G4/W31 (OOB) ). The onlr real changes I'll need to do to the kit is to scratch-built the rear gas tank and filler cap, detail the rear trunk (boot) lid and add a pair of axles/differentials to the underside. I'm NOT going to try to detail the entire chassis, as I'm going to place it on a base. Some further comments to Faust's write up: It's a typical Japanese kit for the mid-seventies. Even Tamiya used to include electric motors in some of their kits. While no means state-of-the-art, it's a quite serviceable model kit. The figures include four identical Nazi senior officers (3 in feldgrau and 1 in dunkelgelb) and Adolf Hitler (also in dunkelgelb). These are comparable to Tamiya figures of the time. The driver figure is missing - I assume he was built and misplaced when the original owner gave up. The assembly was restricted to assembling the drive train using tube glue. This has weakened enough over the years (hey, it's a 45-year-old model) that I was able to pop the chassis members loose and release the motor and gearbox. Unlike some motorised Japanese kits of that era, there is minimal-to-no distortion of the interior parts to allow for the battery box and gearbox, so I don't forsee and major rebuilding needed, aside from the fuel tank and rear axles. The driver I can source from my figure parts box. This will go nicely with my model of Montgomery's Humber Super Snipe. It's moulded in white and black to replicate Der Fuehrer's parade car, and his likeness is shown hatless, with one hand gripping the windshield frame and the other hand in the notorious "Hitler salute". I may cut the heads off some of the figures and alter the angle to give them a little more individuality, as well as swapping out some of their arms for different positions.
