The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.
These models come in really nice packaging. The model itself is attached (via screws) to a cardboard base.
The mode can be detached from the base and the wheels are made of plastic and can roll.
These models are not toys, they will not last long if played with or if taken for a spin in the sandbox.

The Mercedes F1 W07 Hybrid was a Mercedes-Benz Formula One racing car designed and developed under the direction of Aldo Costa, Paddy Lowe, Geoff Willis and Mike Elliott to compete in the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship. The cars were driven by three-time World Drivers' Champion Lewis Hamilton, and Nico Rosberg, both of whom remained with the team for a fourth and a seventh season, respectively. In addition, it was the last Formula One car driven by Rosberg, following his announcement on his retirement from the sport after clinching his first World Drivers' Championship title.
The chassis was named "F1 W07 Hybrid" to represent the seventh Formula One car that Mercedes had constructed since 2010, while the hybrid was marked to recognize the utilization of fully integrated hybrid power units. The car made its competitive debut at the 2016 Australian Grand Prix, the opening round of the 2016 season. After participating 20 rounds of grand prix racing, the car made its final competition appearance at the season finale race – 2016 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, before retirement.
