  1. Afternoon Gentlemen To stay in the same frame as my previous models, I will start building the 1:24 REVELL replica of the famous Mercedes Benz 300 SLR n° 722, which, driven by Sir Stirling Moss, won the first place in all categories of the 1955 edition of the Mille Miglia, at the incredible average speed of more than 93 mph for the time. Let's remember that Mercedes Benz entered five cars for the 1955 Mille Miglia, two 300 SLRs, numbered 722 (Stirling Moss), 658 (Juan Manuel Fangio), and three 300 SLs, numbered 417 (John Fitch), 428 (Olivier Gendebien) and 445 (Salvatore Casella). These five cars finished in the TOP 10, with Moss' SLR finishing first overall, Fitch's SL finishing fifth overall and first in its class (Grand Touring Vehicles over 1.3 litres). My decision follows directly from my 2 previous montages, the goal being to gather in the same showcase the two most emblematic cars of this race. To whet your appetite, here is a link to a Youtube video posted in 2015 when Sir Stirling Moss was invited to drive a Mercedes Benz-built replica of his famous 300 SLR No. 722. (I hope this is not forbidden, and, if anyone knows wether it's the case, let me know please) And now, the unboxing: Tires have inscriptions (Dunlop Racing and some numbers) The instructions: (as you can see, the kit is very old !): . I already had two of these kits in stock, the first one, bought about 30 years ago, had been started with few modelling means, and no documentation available because the public Internet didn't exist or almost, and the second one, bought more recently on eBay because the first kit was no longer fully salvageable to start again on a good basis. So I'll be able to tinker with all these stuffs and probably, in addition to scratch-built parts here and there, try to present it with an opening driver door and rear trunk and its two spare wheels. Stay tuned for next adventures
