Dear. forum members:

I want to thank Baskingshark for his help in locating the Schuco battery operated plastic model of the Mercedes-C111 for me. It meant a great deal to me since it has long disappeared from my childhood memories when my dad an aerospace engineer purchase some of these from Germany for gifts for his crew and good
friends.

I would still like to maintain a search for another one of these models. As soon as I receive the one I purchased on ebay I will give more details , part number for models . date of production.

I really appreciate all of your help and I am glad I joined this group at vintage toys.

Sincerely
Bob Geco

nice diecast model. That is the third generation of the C111 3 rotary motor top speed 186 MPH. then the gas crunch hit and things went down hill.I hear that Mercedes-Benz was planning a 5.0 V8 with a super charger limited production. I can only guess plans were pulled on that project, and the go a head with
the new R0107 350SL was given. Too bad blank checks were flowing in to the factory office from people whom money was no object.
