Setting the bar too high?

Okay, last automobile post for a while, then onto railroading. This is Ricko Rickos 1930-1938 Mercedes-Benz Typ770W07. I posed it in front of one of my San Diego 400 cars (which I’ll blog about later). Seeing the photo enlarged on my computer (click photo above to enlarge), I was shocked to see how the auto has far finer detail than the trolley itself! Notice the Mercedes logo (hood ornament) on the radiator cap. I didn’t even see it until I saw it in the photo- it’s so tiny! These are some dang nicely detailed auto models. There is no way I can match these standards! Yessir – no way!
