Nice photos! I don't want to rain on your parade, this model is seriously prone to paint rash; I have the originally in Black. It's a decent piece with the exception of the solid grilles.
I imagine these were all made at the same time, so if you've experienced it already, then I've yet to notice any show up on mine.

Do you know if that's a one-off with the SL65, or a thing with Minichamps?

I don't buy much of anything from Minichamps nowadays so I can't comment. I do have the Black dealer (purchased 1/17/2010 for $110 CND) version so there could be a difference in production, time and materials. Good luck!

So how did you hear about this tendency for rash then?

Easy, I help run this site. I've been around scale since early 90's. :fingercrossed:
