It's not black, but it is a facelifted R129. You can always get it painted black.


eBay: 1:18 Revell Mercedes 1997 SL500 Convertible Boxed Red (item 280069881125 end time Jan-19-07 05:27:08 PST)

I just won my eBay bid for a 1:18 diecast 1998 silver E320 - $8.95! The guy added about $7.50 to ship it, but I think it's still a good deal. It is new in a box, and made by the company (SunStar) that chinny4290 told me makes the best W210.

However, another option would be the 1/43rd scale 500SL by Minichamps aka Paul's Model Art and is in black.

It sure is black, but it also sure is tiny.

It's small compared to a 1/18, but I still enjoy collecting 1/43. and they still offer a decent amount of detail for their size. If you think 1/43s are small, then look at 1/87s lol

I also think 1/43s are just plain neat and cool, especially the higher end ones like form AutoArt and Kyosho. It just amazes me how indepth they get with detail despite the significant size difference comapred to their larger 1/18 vehicles.

Unhappy I lied

Haha,

I was wrong earlier. I just looked at my PayPal receipt and I actually paid $18.99 ($8.99 plus $10.00 S/H) for the '98 model E320. Oh well, I'm still pleased to have gotten it.

BTW, I asked at least one seller if he had a post-facelift one, and was told "no". I'm wondering if anyone makes one? At least I got the same color as my real Benz!

Depending on the responses here, I might just place a "Want It Now" ad to see what might appear.
