Olivier Mercedes 300 SL - a tribute to Baby Aston

Postby 27flight » Tue Mar 12, 2019 1:56 pm

Hello

This one is realy special.

I discover the Eaglemoss Mercedes in October 2015 when a friend of mine bring one to a meeting. He was sending a DS21 to Germany and then received the 300 SL
I liked it so much but it was impossible to get one in France
One year later Imre (Baby Aston) tell me that he can get one for me from Austria, it was great
Imre sent me about 70 issues and then he suddenly passed away.

I was sad and leave this model for about 1 year
I have got the missing issues from the french collection and now it's up to 96

So as a tribute to Imre, my Mercedes :

I wonder what became of Imre's extensive collection; I had assisted him on obtaining some rare 1:8 model kits and resin car castings ..................
