This model is the IXO GAZ-12 Limousine in black.
There are no opening parts on this model. All features are either cast into the metal or comprise photo-etched parts which are attached during the finishing of the model. The model has separate windscreen wipers, bonnet emblem, front and rear lights, trunk attachment, number-plates and bumpers. The front lights are clear lenses inset into chromed plastic surrounds and mounted into the body. The rear lights are red lenses fitted to a chromed plastic housing and mounted into the body.
The interior is light tan plastic and it has a black left hand drive steering wheel mounted below the slightly detailed dashboard (instrument panel). There is a small, black plastic gear stick in the centre of the drive-shaft tunnel. The glazing is clear plastic.
All wheels have cream hubs with chromed hub caps and separate black "rubber" tyres.
The base plate is black plastic with "1/43" below the back left hand side wheel, and the company logo at the centre top. It also carries a rudimentary representation of the drive-shaft, differential, and exhaust system. It is held in place by 2 small self-tapping security screws.
Issue date is circa 2010 and the scale is said to be 1/43.
