Ron’s model spot

Daim­ler Dart

New Zealand Classic Car - - Automobilia -

This Daim­ler SP250 is a re­cent re­lease in the Ox­ford Diecast 1:43 scale range. The shape and stance of the iconic sports car have been well cap­tured, and the con­vert­ible’s body pan­els and shut lines are nice and fine. Plated parts abound on this model, with other bright parts be­ing tampo-printed in sil­ver. The low-set grille has a back­wash of black, as does the vent ahead of the wind­screen. The headlights are clear glazed with plated bezels, and the tail-light clus­ter is picked out in suit­able colours. A minute ‘Daim­ler’ script sits cor­rectly above the grille.

The in­te­rior de­tail is also good, with items such as the steer­ing-wheel spokes and dash­board panel high­lighted in sil­ver, as are the gear shift and hand­brake. Other di­als are tampo-printed in white. The studs on the folded ton­neau cover in sil­ver, and there is rea­son­able de­tail on the un­der­side, with twin plated ex­hausts ex­tend­ing out un­der the rear bumper. The spoked wheels are ef­fec­tively rep­re­sented by photo-etched
