Except for the engine and the passenger door gap, it looks like a nice model. But the 1/1 car looks a bit awkward for a Benz, IMO...

You're right. Carpeted interior, quite nice detailed, but there is a gap at the passengers side I can not close...
Engine is a disaster...

[/quote]Did you try to squeeze it? Sometimes that helps. The engine bay sucks for sure, but as a MB fan...I'll have to buy one.

Sweet Gunther! Thanks for the photos. Mine just arrived in the US at my vendor so I should be getting it soon. I love the Distronic grille (I think now standard on all B- pre crash warning, but active cruise is an option but regardless you have the shield for the radar) and the nav screen is a neat touch on the 1:1. I think this shape overall looks quite dynamic and hopefully it'll be popular with the younger crowd. It looks like we're going to have the same two colors for the Kyosho B and Norev B!

Any update on your 1:18 ML W166 yet?

It slots in under the C, so I'd have to guess that it will start significantly less than one of those. Perhaps it'll start in the mid $20k range and with options maybe another $10k at the most?

I'm not really sure what this competes with. Maybe the Mazda 5? BMW 1 series 4 door (not available in the States)?
