Owing to the current ongoing situation, the DTCA 2020 AGM which had been booked for the end of June, cannot now take place.   We will have to try and reschedule for later in the year once matters are clearer.

Production of the DTCA special edition Omnisport model has been postponed.

-224 Mercedes Benz C111 (1970-74)

 

Dear Johnny

Thank you for showing us these pictures which answear the question of : "has the Joal C  111 been cast in the same mould as the Dinky Toys one ?"

The details 1 and 2 and the marking 3 could not have been removed

Joal had not yet learned how to cast models without ejector marks which Meccano and Solido knew how to do.

There was no aparent reason to move the spigot 6.

The angles on the Dinky are much sharper than on the Joal. Joal could have made them sharper than the Dinky but not the oposite. On both models the gaps between the doors and the body is quite ugly.

Mercedes certainly provided the same body drawings to both manufacturers, this is why both models are so close to each other.
