GB Models - Mercedes SSKL 1:43 model

Mercedes SSKL model by GB Models

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
This streamlined version of Mercedes' SSKL was not, as we first listed it, a speed record car but a Grand Prix machine entered at Avus in 1933. Semi-retired racer and Mercedes favourite Otto Merz drove the car without lights using the moonlight to see, from Stuttgart to Berlin the night before the race, he then took the car out to practice and it is thought that aerodynamic instability caused him to lose control. The car was fitted with a simple looking streamlined body and this is well cast in resin in the kit. The ancillary parts are a mix of resin and white metal and we see the wire wheels are made with etched spokes with white metal rims cast around the edges. It's a simple kit and the written assembly instructions address colours for the most part. The hand built shows that it all goes together well to make an important but sad piece of Mercedes history.

About GB Models

Very simple, accurate and well made resin models. Castings very clean and all fits together with ease. Built models well finished and accurately detailed. Made in England.
