I've got 2 Maxichamps Mercedes 350SL's, one in gold and one in light blue metallic. However, they didn't paint the front and rear light inserts in silver so the lens appeared in the body colour of the car. I've set out to put some bare metal foil onto the inserts and they looked a lot better. Guess there is some compromise for the cheaper Maxichamps. Will post the photos of the light blue metallic later when I finish the conversion.

In real life I seem to remember most of these I saw where white or silver. I wondered why Maxichamps didn't do these colours, but after a quick google search it seems they were both done as part of the original Minichamps releases.
