Looks like you're starting to get those rally cars in 1:18th. Congrats on this rare find, Mike! I didn't know that Benz had an entry for rally division. Same goes for Ferrari that they also had one (308 GTB I think). Great photos!

JDMike's Diecast Site said...

thanks Gene! theres a lot of cars that are not meant to be rally driven but where made too. :-)

the Ferraris had more entries than the mercs, but none in the 1:18 scale i think?

thanks for the visit!

Nice! i've been wondering if there is 500SLC diecast models do exist in 1/18 scales and i find my answer here.
I must admit that this is really superb casting from Ricko and very good detailing.
