Some of our team’s earliest memories of collecting involve those DTM models from the early nineties from UT Models. Solido brings forward two new classics in their release batch of the newness, and one is a DTM car. There is Mercedes-Benz 190E EVO 2 Team Sonax #3 DTM 1992, driver Kludwig and Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5 16V EVO 2 1990. Both are less than 40 Euros.
As for the models, each is executed in good-old diecast metal. Features include access to the interior and steerable wheels. The remaining bits of the model is sealed. Paint is decent and the decal work on the DTM car is very good for a budget piece. You are expected to glue the side mirrors and small aerial in place. Each car ships with these pieces inside a small clear bag. Literally a five-minute job with some CA glue and small floss brush. Enjoy the pics!
I have both models. The black190E EVO II has a problem with the steering,which is a very basic metal rod attached to the steering wheel and the other end fits on the wheel axle. Because the placement of this rod on the axle is wrong, it pulls the right front wheel of the ground so the car is standing on 3 wheels. I had to disassemble the entire model to cut off the rod so the wheel comes back to the ground and the car is stable. The steering doesn’t work afterwards, but who needs that?
