Mercedes-Benz 300SLR Uhlenhaut Coupe ~ 1955 ~ CMC
For sure the best diecast model in my collection, the CMC is just a tremendous diecast model. The number of separate pieces as well as the number of tiny details is just mind blowing. The model is praised as one of CMC's best models and I can only agree to this oppinion. The car is as good as a modelcar can get.
The detail on the engine is as good as you would expect for a CMC model and that is just top. In the cockpit the use of expensive materials is visible. Leather and metals are used to recreate the Uhlenhaut's interior. The gullwing doors open using a life-like hinge. The rims with metal spokes show outstanding attention to details which is even more visible if you take the wheel of, process which I haven't yet tried. In the boot there are not one, but two spare wheels which are detachable. To talk about all the details of this model car I'd need a lot of space and as I should keep this presentation short I don't afford that...
For the conclusion I have only three words: GO GET IT ! It's a total must if you're fond of the 300 SLR.
