The CMC is one of the jewels in my collection - I just had to add the Minichamps 300 SLR, the #19 Fangio/Moss entry at the ill fated 1955 Le Mans. The L6600 truck is from Schuco and complements the others nicely.
Yes, the ramps can be removed & assembled using the stands attached to the spare wheels.....I have not tried to do this, even though the relevant tool is supplied, as I am sure I would break something :badidea
jinx, i see you are from the Uk too. If you dont mind me asking how much did this model cost and where might i source one from in 1/43.
It reminds me of visting the Mercedes-benz museum in Stuttgart, i have a great picture f the truck with the SLR on the back. I fell in love with it on this day but i decided against buying a 1/18 one i saw because of cost and transport and instead plumped for a Dealer Edition 1/43 Bernd Schneider Vodafone DTM mercedes C-Klasse.

If you guys want i can post ll my pics in a different thread in OffTopic, if there is any demand or want :lol
I don't remember if it was on DX or elsewhere that I saw/heard about the museum, but I would love to visit. It looked an incredible building before you even get to the beautiful machinery inside :tongue
I bought the model two or three years ago from a German online retailer - www.modelcarworld.de - I think it cost about £75-£80. I can't remember the exact price as I bought the 300 SLR & L6600 as part of the same order!
I'm sorry, but, I don't know where you could source one in the UK - modelenium? - they carry a large varied stock....
As for your photos of the Mercedes museum - excellent, most enjoyable, I would love to visit it.
