First off, I decided to trawl the web to find out exactly what type this car is. I don't think that ipantpywheee, except perhaps on the box-art illustration, there is a mention that this is an Opel Olympia. There are loads still on the road, including a good number done up in Wehrmacht colours and markings. This is handy, for reference, in addition to period photos, naturally.
Today I've had a bout of pure exhaustion. I get them periodically, possibly as a result of my underlying conditions, and/or the medication I'm on, etc. I slept from whenever I went to bed/sleep, last night (11-ish?), straight through to about 11.30... i.e. the best part of a solid 12 hours!
Having them got up and active, after a house-clearing trip to the municipal dump (these are never ending, and mostly supplied by the gradual removal of crap from our back garden; that's another story!), and some light shopping, I managed about an hour or two of reading before falling asleep again. This time just for a couple of hours.
I mention all this because - relatively unusual as such bouts of exhaustion are - it shows how even on an ostensible day off, a day when I might hope to get a bit of modelmaking or figure painting in, that's not always possible. I did manage about 45 minutes of very slow work on the Opel Olympia. And it's now finished, construction wise, save for rear-view mirror and windscreen wipers. They'll have to wait until the remainder of the model is painted, and the window masks have been removed.
Today it was mostly tiny detailing elements, such as number plates, rear lights (on ant like antennae!), the front bumper, door-handles (very fiddly!), and a scratch-built petrol filler cap. The latter self made because the supplied piece of styrene was hare-lipped to the point of unusable deformity. I might make my own rear-view mirror for similar reasons. And there are no supplied windscreen wipers. So I'll have fabricate them as well.
