Grand Prix History in Scale Models

Mercedes-Benz Offizielle Modell-Sammlung

Publisher / Distributor
Models’ Manufacturer
Issue 10 of the German Edition

Official Mercedes-Benz Collection issued in 2013 – 2016 in Germany (and available also in Austria) by DeAgostini. The collection was based on a previous French series La Legende Mercedes-Benz by Altaya released in 2007-2009. As in French version, models were produced by IXO.

Fifty models in the German version are identical to the French counterparts (including colors) with some tiny exceptions like the inclusion/exclusion of a “V8” badge decal. Display bases are sometimes identical, but sometimes the text descriptions differ, particularly when it comes to the production year of the full scale car. The extra 30 models in the German series consist mainly of ambulances, police cars, box vans and a tow truck, but also a couple of cars made after the issue of the French series.

Mercedes-Benz Official Scale Model Collection, restricted variant of German Official Mercedes-Benz Collection was also published by De Agostini in UK starting from 2016. 31 models were planned. First model cost £1.99  (free postage), second was £9.99 (+£4.99 P&P), from then on each issue cost £16.99 (+£4.99 P&P). Full list of models is not known to me.
