300SLR
How much would you pay for a Mercedes 300 SLR "Uhlenhaut Coup" knowing that only 9 chassis were manufactured in total, and that only two of them were converted to the coupe version? The last of them was sold for 135 million euros, which is not bad, not bad at all. It is a pity that for some of our "scale" wallets these figures are slightly unreachable, because it cannot be denied that the 300 SLR is one of the most elegant, interesting and beautiful cars to come out of the Mercedes factory.

Now, how much would you pay for a Mercedes 300 SLR "Uhlenhaut Coup" produced by Model Factory Hiro in 1/12 scale, knowing that just a bit over 100 units will be produced? Will its "scaled" priced be compatible with our wallets? Surely with a little effort it will be. :)

At the moment we can only watch out, and be ready to hit the add to shopping cart button at SpotModel website. Or are you going to miss it? :)

Reji Model: Transkit 1/24 scale - Audi Sport Quattro S1 - resin parts - for Nunu reference PN24023

Reji Model Reference: REJI-SP956

The Audi Sport Quattro S1 used different front grilles, where the main difference was in the size of its rectangular headlights. The unit used in the 1986 Olimpus Rally mounted the grill with the "small" headlight configuration, so the Nunu kit comes with rectangular headlights with a size of 6.5 x 4mm, while most works versions sponsored by HB used the "big" headlights. This grill developed by Reji Model makes it possible to correct this detail, mounting headlights that have a size of 9 x 5.5 mm to scale.
