Minichamps 1971 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 AMG #35 (W109)

driven by Helmut Kelleners at Hockenheim.

Absolutely love this model...not a ton of details like some of Minichamps' other race cars, but it just looks SOOO good on display. Kind of wish I'd bought the one with the spot-lights up front (as in the 1:1 pic), but oh well.

I hate the job Minichamps did with the decals. I had the one in the picture and all the decals cracked in a year. I wanted to throw it out but I ebayed it and got 80 bucks for it. Would not buy another one.

Aren't there plain bodied versions? Either way, the decals can come off easily.

This is one bad ass car. Wanted it from the very beginning of my collection.
Now I have two. :manual:
One of the best Minichamps.
