What the 116 owner who has everything needs
« on: 02 August 2018, 11:16 AM »
Its a remote controlled model 116 450SE. Apparently made 1:11 scale approx 14" long by Gama Toys, a West German maker, in the 70s. So when the weather is bad and and you don't want to take the 116 out you can play with this in the warm and dry. Good write up on it in the current Classic Mercedes.

That so? Never come across one before. Even the lights work.

Pity about the colour and no price.

oh, it's just an example. If you type "Gama mercedes" you get a lot more hits. Often, the ones that simply say "VB" (negotiable) are sellers willing to sell cheaper then the others. If you click the button "diese Suche speichern" (remember this search) you will get an email each time one pops up. Since they are not rare, just costly, you can take your time, wait a few days or months for the right listing and then pounce.

Rather looks the one you found earlier. Bit pricey for a toy and you must admit the detailing is poor.

Ha, could be the same one! I am not looking for a Gama myself, just bumped into this one by accident. Still, seems you were quite right about that pricing.. Nothing mint under 100 euros since last we spoke. Maybe you'll have to bite that last-50-bucks bullet and simply pay up to get the one you want.
I got that same issue with the Prameaeta Mercedes. Lots of them around but apparently no way to get a mint one under 300 euros.. Been 2 years looking now. On top of that, I need the MB-Christmas Edition to fit my collection, and besides an old pic, not a sign of such anywhere.
