Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Mercedes 300SL 1st Le Mans 1952 Alternative version SPK4408 #20 & SPK4409 #22 In original form the 300SL coupe only had the side windows that could hinge to access to the cockpit but for Le Mans modifications were required to create a deeper door to ease access and gave birth to the famous ‘Gullwing’ road cars. The success of these coupes at Le Mans also helped cement their place in history with a reliable ruin to a formation 1-2 finish after Levegh’s solo effort in the Talbot ended in mechanical failure with just over an hour to go. The shape of the cars looks very good on the models, the panel engraving is very crisp and the silver paintwork has a very subtle sheen. An interesting detail, given that most race images are in black and white, is that the interior colours differ and there is the subtle inclusion of a coloured pit i.d. light in the windscreen of each matching the grille surround.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
