Anyone knows if the Red Mercedes SL65 Blackseries from Minichamps has paint rash? I bought a gloss black and it has a horrible paint rash.

    Yeah most Red ones I've seen suffer from it.
    Also, in my opinion, it's not a good model and was the start of Minichamps's decline.
    Lack of side windows, solid front grilles, cheap looking wheels & brakes etc.
    It should have been better!

    I have a black one and used it to make a custom Brabus SL65 'vanish'. After a few years the rash emerged and has ruined the engine bonnet :( damn paint rash.

    I dont think it´s a bad model, I really like it, I missed the side windows but I modded it with Motormax windows.
    Too bad to hear that other colors are prone to paint rash too, I have the matt black and it´s perfect but I wanted a gloss one but it was a mess.
