CMC 1:18 1937 Mercedes-Benz #12- Caracciola- GP Nьrburgring Ltd Ed of 3000

If it’s 1937 and you are into the fastest Grand car of the age, you’d be staring the front cowl of the intimidating W125. At the world’s greatest the W125 would prove whether it be the uniquely banked or the romantic locales of Tripoli and At SPA, the W125 would set a pace, ripping through the old at 193 mph. And those weren’t accomplished by their best In 1937, that driver was Caracciola and he piloted the W125 in in several Grand Prix the one that CMC has modeled here, the car one the race on what is arguably the race circuit of them the Nurburgring.

The W125 won because of several innovations made necessary the 1936 W25 was totally outclassed by Union. Mercedes reorganized racing operations under Neubauer who brought on 30 year old Director” Rudolf Uhlenhaut. smoothed operations between and design, often testing the himself, lapping the Nurburgring lap times competitive with the

The Uhlenhauth directed improvements the suspension, specifically vastly handling by instituting a softer suspension. He also added power by having the supercharger on an induction system instead of the carbeurator”. This and a change in size boosted performance to 654 hp to the 354hp of the W25.

Like CMC models, the car is not so much a model but a engineered sculpture. But you wouldn’t it from the packaging. The model in the austere plain box packaging all CMC arrive in, which is unexciting yet faultless and perfectly protective. The in the notes is somewhat broken hey AUTO art, at least try).

The in line V8 engine is artfully here. Everything from fill caps to small stickers just left me in my amazement (and if my wife asks, yes it was a model of a car I was whistling Not only is there wire, but like pigtailed linkages to the controls. While many of the are plastic, that is not the overall your eyes will on, there are too many other details such as the supercharger and the headers which lead to a exhaust, complete with discoloration.

The in-line eight is artfully modeled here. from textured fill to small specification stickers left me whistling in my amazement. much of model is plastic, is not the overall impression your will dwell on, there are too other interesting details as the supercharger assembly with fatigue discoloration.

In terms of wheels, no one today is wheels equal with CMC and is certainly the case here, the filigree wire wheels are with painstaking care, a attention to detail. The tires are treaded and every trademark and imaginable is embossed on the originals replicated here.

The cockpit it a media delight with the cloth seat, riveted dashboard, mirrors and windscreen. the steering is not functional through the wheel, however, the wheel is jewel-like, with the enameled center.

CMC claims there were 1,000 parts used in model and I’d take them at word. Seeing photos of the on web is one thing, experiencing it is magical. you deserve a little magic?
