Seeing both of these in the New Arrivals forum a few weeks past got me to thinking about shooting these two beauties together.

It's an interesting parallel in that both cars were the benchmarks of their respective eras, and it could be argued that both models have set benchmarks in the art of diecasting.





The next two are just over the size limit.



Making a cameo appearance: The Highspeed Transporter

Behind this wheel are the best brakes I've seen on a model.

75(?) hand set spokes.

Great photo's too!

I think the Merc's look bonza in Silver.

Special diecast models for sure. :eek:k

:coolpics I'm awaiting delivery of the W196 in the next few days which will complete my collection of classic 1950's MB racers. I've wanted the C9 for some time and your insight about being benchmarks both as cars and as models might just have given me the excuse I've needed! However, I've spent so much in the last month since I found this site that I've got to go "cold turkey" while my bank account settles down. I just hope that Exoto doesn't decide to "retire" the C9 for a little while, or bump the price even higher! :goodpost

Hey Mosteller,

I would love to see some pics of your MB collection.

How about it?

Do you have all the CMC silver arrows? I only have the 196 Monoposto which is sitting on the transporter all tied down and ready for the autobahn's....:giggle.

Superb models.

:cheers

Timbo.

Awesome MB's! :cheers

I have the same C9and have been seriously contemplating the transporter and W196, it's such a sweet car.

That's the Fangio car right? Did CMC not also do a Stirling Moss version? :confused
