(PICS) A few more seldom shown 1/24 diecasts...mid '50s racing Mercedes
The two silver ones were from Pauls Model Art (Minichamps) in 1993...Fangio's Mercedes SLR, complete with operating 'air-dam braking assist, as well as the Uhlenhaut coupe (a vehicle intended for racing but never actually raced). These models had super nicely done wire wheels at a time when most manufacturers were doing cruder molded wires.

The cream Mercedes 300SLS roadster was produced by CMC, 19 years ago, depicting a car raced by Paul O'Shea as one of two Mercedes set up for racing in the USA. Evidently, Paul and Mercedes won the sports car championship in '55,'56, and '57 but not necessarily all in this car.
