Corgi Classics C806; 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC; Hand-Carved Wooden Die Blank

 

I bought this with four others for Corgi cars released at about the same time, in September 2019. I bought it from a retired employee of Mettoy who had worked at the Northampton factory. The blank is carved over sized and is reduced to the final production scale (1:36 scale in this case) using a pantograph.
