This model is the IXO ZIS-101A 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, 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 behind the rear wheel arches.

The interior is off-white 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 appear to be one piece, chromed plastic hubs in the fashion of a solid wheel rim of the era with chromed hub caps and separate black "rubber" tyres.

The base plate is black plastic with "1/43" at the bottom centre, and the company logo at the centre right 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.
