Reference For Your 300 SL Project

Guys,
some of you may contemplate about building Tamiya’s new Mercedes 300 SL like Jack and George already did.

I found this magnificent car today at the Schlumpf Museum in Mulhouse, France. It’s unrestored in original, slightly patinated condition and gives, as I find, a beautiful reference.

14 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. V cool. Thanks for posting.

  2. Great set of pics for the modeler OR the car lover….a classic. Thanks.

  3. That’s a beautiful car! I’ve heard that museum is really great, as well.

  4. I just had one drive past me on the 101 freeway the other day. But that’s not that unusual in El Lay, strange car capital of the planet.

  5. Always loved this car, I had HO race cars as a boy of this model. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Thanks for sharing these pictures with us, Halvar, strangely, I saw one of these in a museum in South Korea earlier this year, it’s a shame to see them locked up like that, but good to hear that Tom saw one recently being used on the road. The museum looks like it has many other interesting cars………
