OXFORD DIECAST 1/43 DAIMLER 1929 KING GEORGE V (SANDRINGHAM)


This magnificent detailed Royal Daimler purchased by King George V and delivered in August 1929 was for his personal use and only two were made - the second was for his wife Queen Mary. Painted in the Royal colours of black and maroon, the car also carried the appropriate heraldic decoration. The Royal 'identification' lamp was fitted on the canopy and the crowning glory has to be the mascot on the bonnet depicting Britannia sitting on the Globe and the Royal Standard features proudly above the front windscreen. Model is presented on a removable plinth with a removable hard plastic cover. Shop here
