FREE SHIPPING IN THE US AND US TERRITORIES
This model of the G-500 is about 7.0 inches long, 3 inches wide and 3 inches high. It is highly detailed, with beautiful body paint and accurate markings. Welly does very high quality models and this one is not the exception. headlights, taillights and turn signals are made of separate plastic pieces which makes the whole model look very realistic. Moreover, side mirrors are also made of separate pieces.
Doors can open to reveal a very detailed and accurate interior with some touches of color on parts such as seats, seat belt buckles and even on the instrument panel. The engine compartment can be opened and the engine is nicely represented.
This model comes in two color variations, please confirm/request your option at the time of purchase (of before). Otherwise I will check with you or send you whatever color is available.
The models we have are the ones that come in a display tray box of 4 models per box (The type of box that would be on a counter in a store). These are not the models that come in individual window box. They will be expertly (for real, I am the one who does it) packed for shipping (they will be better protected than an in an individual window box).
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, sometimes called G-Wagen (short for Geländewagen, "cross country vehicle"), is a four-wheel drive luxury SUV manufactured by Steyr-Daimler-Puch (now Magna Steyr) in Austria and sold by Mercedes-Benz. In certain markets, it has been sold under the Puch name as Puch G. The G-wagen is characterized by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. Despite the introduction of an intended replacement, the unibody SUV Mercedes-Benz GL-Class in 2006, the G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler's history, with a span of 35 years. Only the Unimog surpasses it.
The G-class was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran (at the time a significant Mercedes shareholder) to Mercedes and offered as a civilian version in 1979. In this role it is sometimes referred to as the "Wolf" and LAPV Enok. The Peugeot P4 is a variant made under license, with a Peugeot engine and different parts.
