The DMC S-12

The DMC S-12 is named for its straight-twelve engine which is the result of combining two Pocher Mercedes straight-eights and converting the result into a normally aspirated engine with little resemblance to its origins.  This model, along with the DMC Double-Six, were inspired by the British Phantom II Rolls-Royce chassis which have been equipped with aircraft engines.  Little of the original kits is still present in unmodified form in the DMC S-12, and much has been scratch-built, including the metal hoods and side grills, the interior, and the numerous details on the engine and chassis.  Scratch-built instruments are set into a cherry-wood dashboard, and every mechanical system has been faithfully included.  DMC is open to special projects, and the DMC S-12 is proof that the sky is the limit.

The digital photos on this site are unaltered.  Well, 'unaltered' may be a bit of an exaggeration, but for the most part they bear

some semblance to the models depicted.  If you see dust, the image is dead nuts on.  If there is no dust, it is something of a crapshoot, but

captures the essence of the model without the distractions of  background clutter and pet hair and  the odd insect wing or bird dropping.
