Could you please show some close up shots of the bracket. I did a scissor door setup on an S 500 a few years ago too. Maybe we can share ideas and improve on em.

Default Renaux Auto 1:18

I was cleaning my 1:18 display unit and decided to take a few pictures of the collection . These are all the 1:18 four wheelers in my collection.

And thanks, all, for appreciating my collection (I haven't quite got the hang of multi-quoting yet).
Now here is a Schuco 1:87 scale Mercedes-Benz bus (Deutsche Bahn):

And after seeing Dussey's beautiful Karmann, I just have to post my own Karmann Cabriolet:
flotsam, Thats a lovely Merc bus and a beautiful Karmann cabriolet.

I love the Tijuana Taxi, the design is amazing. TD is a fine designer. The only problem I have with the TD Diecasts are the fact that most of the body work is not 'diecast'... the chassis is, but the body is plastic, otherwise the designs are amazing.

Will get some pictures up of the display unit. I had posted some up a long time ago.

Thanks Dussey.
And RPMPKDMFF, that's a superb collection you have there! Looking forward to individual close-up shots of each one of them when you have the time.
