We are delighted to reveal the next in our series of race weathered models at 1:8 scale. This hand-made limited edition of just 5 models depicts the Mercedes-Benz W196 Monoposto, precisely as it was raced by Sir Stirling Moss to his first Formula 1 victory at the British Grand Prix at Aintree Circuit on the 16th July 1955. Each model is accompanied by an archive quality Giclée print of the car as it crossed the line, selected by Amalgam from the Motorsport Images collection.
The race weathering has been applied by the artisans in our Bristol workshop, and exactly represents the #12 car as it reached the chequered flag. The artistry applied to these 5 models exemplifies our commitment to creating beautiful hand-made pieces which fully capture both the spirit and precise appearance of iconic race cars at significant events.
