Nice car for the money, of course completely sealed. Headlights look cheap
Bright green metallic color.

I kinda like the colour on your 200D. I got a grey one 300D last year. I posted some photos on another thread https://www.diecastx...es-w124-series/ if you like to check out mine...

I thought MCG did well overall capturing the essence of the W124 but they really mucked up the front. Whats with the square headlights?? I couldnt find any reference of any models with those even the aftermarket one. Quite annoying really because I personally think that is the most aesthetic side of the W124. Were your models exposed to direct sunlight somehow? Apart from sun damage the only other possibility could be the fume released by glue over time? I had that happened to two of my early KK-scale Ferraris.

I keep them in cabinets behind glass and there is also a curtain at the window, so no direct sunlight. But it has to be UV-damage, because all the cars are damaged at the same side...

yea UV damage really sucks! Currently i have a window opposite to the display cabinet where evening sun does shine in for up to half hour and I covered the window up with giant picnic mat.

I am a huge fan of the MCG W124. I know that there are some things wrong with it but it captures the shape really well and the shelve presence is great for its price.

I love this generation of the W124 and overall MCG has done a good job but the headlights and the narrow width of the tires don't help the cause to add one.
