Maisto MB 500k
This gorgeous MB arrived yesterday and I spent the evening detailing it.
Have to admit I have no clue as to how Maisto could make such a beautiful model at the current average price point.
The paint is just Fantastic looking more like the multi coat Enamel of years gone by. The interior is just as beautifully done, the instrument panel being fine small gauges set back just like the prototype not cheap decals slapped on a flat surface.
Even the rumble seat is beautifully finished .
If there is a fly or two in the ointment it that the light groups are plastic and therefor rather fragile. Beware when handling!
The engine is unfortunately painted the same color as the body on whichever model you choose .but these are minor nits to pick.
It’s even a true 1/18 scale as opposed to many of the lower priced models on the market....as the Brits like to say BLOODY MARVELOUS !!
