The year 2017 is rapidly approaching, and with it, new calendars. In its 2017 calendar, Mercedes-Benz Classic chose to stage some of the finest miniatures of its brand. The miniatures catalog featuring the Mercedes Benz star is particularly wide. The 2017 calendar of Mercedes-Benz Classic did not staged real cars, but instead 13 miniatures! At the scale of 1/18th, they are not really toys. There is also quite a varied selection: from 1904 to 1992, cars, race cars, trucks, buses… d326244-mercedes-benz-classic-2017-calendar-twelve-little-ge 13 models before the shoot were specially prepared to receive a “patina” giving the illusion of a vehicle having rolled: dust, exhaust gas … Then the models were photographed in a studio. Depending on circumstances, the environment of the photograph was recreated realistically in the studio, or the vehicle was embedded in the original photo of a scene. The result of this calendar is amazing! It is difficult to tell if it was a full size car or a miniature!
