As far as customs, I've bought a couple on ebay over the years, but have never made one of my own, until now.
I found a big stash of cars in my parents basement not long ago, and included in that box was a big pile of extra 380s. I've accumulated probably 50 of them total, and only 30 being distinct variations! So I've got plenty to customize haha.
This custom started life as a fairly common, white 1980s release, complete with those oh so 80s Ultra Hot wheels. One thing was certain, those had to go!
I wanted to go for a factory look, and a lot of these cars were two tone. Mercedes loved the two tone look back then, and I have to say, it does look pretty sharp. So to keep it easy, I left the top part of the body white, and painted the lower portion light grey, just like how you could've ordered your new W126 back in the 80s. A simple swap of the new Matchbox disc wheel, and some detail painting, and job done.
Next job might be to do a black one with the charcoal grey lower portion. That always looked nice. Do you have any ideas? I'd love to hear from you in the comments section.
