There are two 1/12 Diecast Mercedes Benz SLR model car products at present. One is the CMC’s SLR, super-detailed and costs 2000 USD, the other, produced by Motormax at a low price 100 USD but poorly detailed. Everybody loves the CMC’s SLR by the splendid details and the spectacular atmosphere it blows, however, when the price is told, nobody would dare to dream to own such an expensive model anymore, and the only word left is “WOW”. So, the second choice, certainly, will be the Motormax’s SLR for its low price but regrets and disappointments appeared.

The Motormax’s SLR—Before improving

The Motormax’s SLR is good in scale and outward appearance but poorly detailed that it is unacceptable for a serious modeler or collector except the low price. To avoid regrets and disappointments, I dismantled the model into pieces in order to improve the parts for higher quality. See the original details below.
