LeGrand 1/8 model kit LE102 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR "Uhlenhaut Coupe" (1955). Pocher importer LEMKE is announcing a sensational new kit for 2021: Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR in the large scale 1/8. The already available Volkswagen Beetle convertible should only be the entry into a series of new 1/8 kits. The preliminary highlight of the series is the "Uhlenhaut Coupe" from 1955. Not to be confused with the well-known Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing - the 300 SLR is a thoroughbred racing car with an 8-cylinder in-line engine. According to LeGrand, the kit level in terms of difficulty should also be suitable for non-professionals - almost all parts are screwed and therefore the assembly is relatively easy to accomplish.
We therefore recommend placing your order soon if you wish to have a 300 SLR as it is likely that by the May/June delivery date there will be production reserved. Lemke company provides a PDF document on the Mercedes 300 SLR with the latest developments and an updated release date:
Most importantly, the release date in Germany is now scheduled for the second quarter of 2023. More precisely: April/May/June 23! We keep our fingers crossed that the pandemic in China / the war in Ukraine / or other adverse circumstances will not delay this further!Note from 2022-08-05:
Tobias Lemke reports that the construction of the 300 SLR is now finally complete and the tools are going into production. The entire series is to be produced before the Chinese New Year and then sent to Germany by sea freight. The start of sales with us is therefore announced for March 23.
Note from 2022-06-23:
Unfortunately, the Lemke company has once again raised the targeted price for the SLR Mercedes kit. It is now EUR 1198.00. We have therefore calculated sharply again and set our sales price at EUR 1100.00. We hope it stays that way and that this wonderful model will finally be available!
Manufacturer Lemke announces that the final delivery of the 300 SLR kit is not expected before December 2022. Of course, all of our customers' pre-orders will remain in place until then.
LeGrand manufacturer Lemke reports that the research, construction and production of the new Mercedes 300 SLR kit is significantly more problematic than originally planned. The publication date must therefore be corrected to spring 2021. Even the previously targeted price of EUR 998.00 can probably no longer be held. We have therefore stopped selling the new LeGrand model at the moment and will only accept new orders after the final selling price has been announced. We ask our customers for understanding that we will probably have to correct the sales price for all unpaid pre-orders. If you do not agree, you can of course withdraw from your order at any time. The old price remains for customers who have already paid for their order.
