Gull-Winging its way into hearts across the world!
The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL is a piece of automobile legend, the famed German maker's super sports car with gull wings that once were seen, were never forgotten. It was a 1954 release, and drew largely upon a successful racing prototype from 2 years earlier, inheriting the inner mechanics of a race car and THAT sublime silhouette. What could the world do but embrace such a thing of beauty? In fact, the gull wings were not only an aesthetic masterstroke, they were born of necessity: the 300 SL's state-of-the-art tubular space frame made the use of "regular" side-opening doors somewhat impractical. The body had in fact received a few minor tweaks from the original prototype, resulting in a more elegant road-going sports car-esque appearance. Power was provided by an inline-6 engine that featured direct injection technology (a world first) that generated 215hp and a considerable amount of speed. Naturally, fans across the world clamored (and still do) to get their hands on the 300 SL.

Take some time to drink in the excellent accuracy in the recreation of the elegant 300 SL form.

The car's iconic gull wing doors are opening, as is the engine hood. Stay parts are included to prop them open.

The model authentically captures the inline-6 engine at its distinctive cant used to achieve the low-nose form.

Metal transfers are used to recreate logos such as the Mercedes-Benz emblem, giving a high-quality finish.

Nylon mesh is included in the kit to enable realistic depiction of the air intakes inside the front grille.

Separate parts are used to recreate the fender air outlets, metal plated parts providing the finishing touch.

The tubular space frame was cutting edge, used widely among racing cars at the time. It is breathtakingly recreated.

The model gives a real understanding of the 300 SL layout including engine, prop shaft and gas tank.

Clear under guard parts are included. Leave them unpainted to appreciate the frame, even after completion.

Don't forget the interior, which offers a great level of detail including instrumentation depicted with decals.

Bucket seats really emphasize the sporty nature of the 300 SL, which has its roots in a prototype racing car.

Bumper parts are included to recreate U.S. or European spec 300 SL models.

This is a 1/24 scale plastic model assembly kit of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL.
Length: 188mm, Width: 75mm, Height: 53mm.
The complex tubular space frame is given a breathtaking rendition in 1/24 scale. It is constructed in the same way as that of the actual car.
