Another solid replica to come across our desk is the 1:18 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class by Almost Real. The two-tone exterior is deserving of the luxury tax, features Obsidian Black over Iridium Silver, the combo is perfectly aligned with the exterior lines. Read an in-depth review of a similar Almost Real model by our friend Karsten.
As for the model, the paint and the transition of the two colours are skillfully applied. The Silver just pops against the Black. Full 360 access is a common thread and something that all collectors gravitate too. The motor and interior are attractively appointed too. Key elements that help Almost Real excel to win DiecastSociety.com Model of the Year honours two years in a roll. Enjoy the pics!
