TOPIC: Another Tekno Mercedes-Benz 220S Code 3

Another Tekno Mercedes-Benz 220S Code 3 3 weeks, 2 days ago #1

Expert Boarder
<p>I've recently begun work on restoring another of the Tekno Mercedes-Benz 220S ambulances in my collection. This one is going to remain an ambulance. I started with the Falck version with the dome light rather than the flag atop. Here it is in gray primer with the base painted in white primer.</p>

<p>You can see that I removed the rear seat/cargo area insert I made for my first 220S Code 3 to use as a template for another. More to follow...</p>

It is good to see the workings of these models and how different manufacturers did things like the suspension , this looks really sturdy and hard to break.

I was going to say the same thing. It's fun to see how the Tekno designers came up with the suspension on these big Mercedes. Thanks for the photos! Actually, the 700 and 900 series from Tekno were actually sub-contracted out to H. Langes Legetøj, so their designers did these Mercedes ambulances!

<p>The next step in my plan involved the creation of a latex mold to make resin casts of the 220S bench seat. This could also prove useful for other restorations or Code 3s.</p>
<p>
</p>
<p>I reinforced the latex mold with bandage gauze to prevent it from becoming overly flexible.</p>

<p>From left to right: the seat that was used to form the mold, the clear resin re-pop of the seat, and a seat from another 220S to be restored or used for parts.</p>
