The display case has an aluminium turned style base with the original peliglass cover etched with Mercedes – Benz W125 on the back and a plaque on the base detailing the model.
This is a truly stunning model almost 2 foot in length including the case. A wonderful addition to any automobilia collection or as a stand alone centre piece.

Please note as the cover is original it has a few small scratches and the glued edges have slight ‘clouding’ in places as most of these models cases do over time. A brand new cover (without etching on the back) can be supplied for around £100.
