Mercedes Diecast custom projects (small scale 1/64)

Here are a few years old photos of my diecast customization project: SL 55 AMG from Maisto Playerz series, scale aprox. 1/64.

Some mods I have done:
-chopped the roof
-added a lot of speakers (a whole custom sound-system, not Bose, that's for sure, ha ha)
-painted the interior (chrome air vents, door handles, silver door trim, some silver buttons on main console, hardly visible)
-changed the rims
-probably i forgot some mods detail :)

Hope you like it:

will add some more old and new photos of different 1/64 and 1/43 custom projects that I've done, OK :)

showroom spy shoots :)

I guess every collector dreams of a special showroom to cast and proudly show their collection, whatever collecting theme they are up to. In my (our) case, we are talking about model car collections, so called diecasts... we're not talking about showing off, but about properly presenting the collection for yourself and others to see the beauty of this wonderful hobby...

I started building mine showroom earlier this year, and it is still a long way to go...

here are two random shoots of it showing a few Lamborghinis (I'm still moving them around the shelves :) ) and Bugattis EB110, all in 1/18 scale, later maybe more photos to follow :)

Comments are welcome :)

Which one would you take for a spin ? Both are beautiful and both are legendary; introducing the 300 SL Roadster and Vespa Piaggio. Imagine wind, sun and sea... oh man, gotta love summers :)

So pick yours, and go on daydreamin...

See ya ( in 1/18 scale :) )

Incredible work from Modell-Lichtsysteme

Check the video! Work of art is what this is all about :) A Mercedes-Benz 190E EVO II and 190E 2.3 16V packed with lights, and looks like the real thing ! No cheap and strange looking led diodes here.

Props up for the master of this Light-styling/tunning or whatever you wanna name it...
both cars are in 1/18 scale !

Mercedes-Benz 190E EVO II
