Mercede-Benz E-Klasse | W212

The fourth generation of E-Klasse from Mercedes was launched in 2009. The first presentation for the press was at NAIAS 2009 in the United States. First presentation in Europe was in the same year at the Geneva Motor Show.
Design work began in 2004 after the development program commenced in 2003, with the exterior design by Winifredo Camacho and interior design by Thomas Stopka being selected in 2005. After refinements and engineering considerations being made, the final design specifications were frozen in 2006. Certain elements of the exterior styling are taken from the preceding W204 C-Classand W221 S-Class each designed in 2002 and 2003. The bulging rear wheel arches are meant to be reminiscent of the fender flares of historic "Ponton" Mercedes models of the 1950s. The design of the W212 and C207 E-Class was previewed by the ConceptFASCINATION design study in September 2008. [Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W212), (last visited Mar. 4, 2018).]
The model I present is an Maisto @ 1|18th scale modified. Stance, SLR rims, tow-tone interior and black chrome are easily notice as diffrences comparing with the serial model.
The details you can see in the photos below.
Enjoy the ride.

Renault Kerax | snow plow

It is the 21st of January 2018. Everybody is waiting for a snowy night. Every body is ready to fight the nature... we imagine that...!
Those this things remembers me a conversion I made in Christmas Holyday.
The base is the Renault Kerax 8x4 dump truck. I adapted a snow plow from the Kerax "chasse neige" an that's all. Some weathereing in the dumper was also added for close to reality look.
The model is damn big. Just look at it.

welcome 2o18

2018 is the 5th year of blogging for me. As a consequence I celebrate the 5th year of custom | scale | car The new header template for this year remember us this anniversary.
Talking about the last year, it was a quiet one. I say this but in fact it means I don't publish as much as I wanted. The lack of time, other priorities, job and so on... You know, the best explanation we can have in this era. But I had always in my mind one thing : "the show must go on" as Freddie Mercury said some time ago. And in spite of my weak activity, the bog still exists. I have done some analyses for the end of the 2017 and the data are below.

The sessions number by country (2013-2018):

If we go further we can see the number of sessions in the last year (2017-2018) by country. 
Compared with last year data, there is a big change in top 3. 2016 - 2017 was in order Russia, USA and Romania compared with 2017 - 2018 when we have Romania, United states and Poland/France. Russia goes down on the 8th position.
talking about the N° of visitors, we are in easily descending number. But this is the direct consequence of the small number of articles (7 posts all year long).

But !
The great change is the type of hardware the visitors use to access the blog.
The trend 2017 - 2018 compared with 2016-2017. It become necessary to adapt the look of custom | scale | car for mobile devices. As anticipated last year!

That's all folk of 2017.
I wish you to enjoy every little second of 2018! Finally it's up to us to have a joyfully 2018.
