Oh man I dont want to see a repeat :giggle (some moderators will know what I am talking about)

The model is very nice (Panamericana). I find it to be very good... but not as good as the latest from CMC. It depends on how much they are asking, some of the latest are only about 30 euros more expensive, which I find, a better bargain than this. Its defnietely a nice car though.

Dont know anything about the other one, but I would surely get the panamericana out of the two!

Dear MockingBird,

First, the 300SL Pan'Am from CMC is perfect. The Engine is a little poor, the rest - interior and exterior - is simply great. You can take a look of my one:

Mercedes 300 SL W194 Pan'am / CMC

Second, the SL450 from CMC. Here the same, but the dashboard is very very great. The real leather on the seats could be a little better like the engine could be a little detailled. The complet model is perfect. Some very nice features... You can take a look too to my SL450:

Mercedes Benz SL450 R107 / CMC
(with a comparison CMC Sl 450 vs SunStar SL350)

MB, if I could find both the CMC and Ricko version of the Panamericana, I would decide based on price alone. Of course the CMC is more expensive, but if it wasn't TOO expensive I would get it just because it's from CMC. I have one Alfa from Ricko and it's crap (but their Panamericana is very good, from the pics I've seen).

I won't comment on the 450 because it reallydoesn't do nothing for me, though I've read that it's a quite nice model (but way inferior to CMC's more recent cars).

Regarding the 300 SL, I have the Ricko model and am very pleased with it. While I have only seen pictures of the CMC model, I would be hard pressed to justify the difference in price. My advice, get the Ricko and spend the $100+ difference on another diecast. :mine :cheers

What's the different on both models? Hmmm...

Mainly, the used material is different. The finish from Interior is different. The production is different. Of course - the names are different.

And the CMC 300SL have hidden goodies inside the model.

The Rickos model is a 'usual' great model - CMC's one is 'unusually'.
From the distance regarded, they are alike - of sew regarded completely differently.
