For the Tinkerer: Schuco Mercedes Silver Arrow Kit by Manufactum

The first Schuco car built in 1936 was a wonder of mechanical precision and realistic equipment. 

The models that followed featured all kinds of mechanical sophistication like gearboxes and working handbrakes. But the Silver Arrow was not just a legendary racing car. It became a true classic as a Schuco model, with a working steering wheel, a differential and a rugged suspension. It’s driven by a wind-up spring with a key and an additional wind-up axel wound up by a friction wheel. The Silver Arrow comes as a kit (the spring mechanism is already installed) just like it was in the 1930s.

Our tip:

this is a collector’s model. It is not suitable for children under 14.
