Red face Owner of Mercedes Benz SSK

I am new to this site and i'm looking for the an owner of a mercedes benz SSK. I am doing a degree in modelmaking and am making a 1:12 scale model of the SSK. I have been using the burago 1:18 scale model for reference but the detail is limited. It would be great to have a contact with this model to ask questions and get more specified photos.

Since there aren't more than a half-dozen or so SSKs still in existence, finding them shouldn't be a problem. I imagine they are all in museums; they are for sure in private collections. You won't find anyone in this forum with one in the garage next to his wife's Honda Odyssey.

You also aren't likely to find an owner willing to let you put a ruler to his multi-million dollar car to get the scale right.

There are hundreds of pictures of SSKs around. Those may have to suffice.
