Mercedes-Daimler L.21 - 1/72nd scratchbuilt completed

(This is the completed model post. If you would like to see the step-by-step building article, please go here:

The post of the twin plane, D623, can be seen here:

At last the completed model, small but of attractive design. For such pocket-size endeavor, lots and lots of work with plenty of things to take care of.
My thanks again to Mika Jernfors of Arctic Decals and to Sönke Schulz, who gave me the final nudge to start this one.
Once more, this is D622, one of the two planes that participated in the 1925 Rundflug. It was not finished at the start of the competition, therefore lacks paint in certain areas and some details that are however visible in the sister plane, D623 , which was fully painted and had details like the Mercedes-Daimler star on the nose, among other things.
