Mercedes 450SLC (C107)

Post by AdamYip » Tue Nov 08, 2016 5:44 am

Glad to see some of these older Minichamps being released under the brand name Maxichamps at a reduced price. The quality was about the same as the gold one that I got over 20 years ago. Most of my Minichamps models has suffered from zinc pesting over the years and its great to be able to get those again.

Silver is nice but I wished they made some other colours that they never made before, like white (not pearl white) or signal red.

Cheers,
Adam

Wonderful addition Adam! Have always admired these cars as I remember them seeming so very exotic when they were new and I was a little tyke. Recently bought an old Minichamps version in 'silver green' for very little money but your new Maxichamps looks every bit as good, if not better! BB

I loved the SLC too as my dad used to drive a Mercedes 280S (W116) at the time and there were so many similarities between the C107 and W116.

Cheeers,
Adam
