I have had this model (Along with 12 or-so other's, watch out for topic's if them) for nearly 1 month, and a few days ago i only just got around to taking some photo's.
My camera has been in Dixon's being fixed but is now O.K, thank goodness :hot

First off is this, my CMC Mclaren Mercedes SLR.

Here's something i was abit dissapointed with, the 1:1's air-brake lift's up to a straight vertical point, but on the CMC 1:18, this is as far as it lift's.


And here's another, something that has really bugged me ever since i first saw this model, its wheels, something i still can't forgive CMC for.
They are just to small and the tyres are to thick, it does look like it has Rally tyre's on.
And the thing that made me think is that Maisto got there wheel size spot-on, why isn't this so on the CMC, a models that costs more that 10 times a Maisto does? :pullhair






Here's something i did like, inside the big boot....


...there is a removeable boot carpet.


Really like the look of these 2 picture's.

Sid: I best put this back in.


Sid: Hmmm.....really hope this is going to fit.


Sid: MAN THIS IS HEAVY.




Sid: WOW, this car's boot is so big i can get a Smart ForFour inside it.

Great pics MrV! :cheers
It's still an awesome car, despite the wheels.
One question: What's UNDER the boot carpet? :giggle

Lovely model Dean. :nicejob

Even though it didn't win its section in DX model of the year, i'm still resolute that it is the best 1:18 of a modern supercar available today.
The silver paintwork looks stunning, as does the red leather interior.

:cheers

Dixon's did a great job of fixing your camera Dean.

WOW great photo's :coolpics.

I haven't got this model but if i did the Silver would be my colour too. I guess i always associate Mercedes with Silver from the W series open wheelers.

Well done :edit and a great addition to your collection. Thanks for sharing.

:cheers

Timbo.
