This is really hard one.... But I go with Real this time, the finishing and details are so realistic, that if it is model, it's Huge one. Somehow it looks like model too, but...

If it's a model, it's would have to be on a big scale, and it would be incredibly detailed work.

However, on balance,I'm going with REAL.

Just bumping this up. Someone commented on the last one, so it rose to the top above this one and confused my addled brain.

it looks so "real".... but... i see some things that don't seem right for 1:1..... model. Pocher, maybe; or even handbuilt from scratch...... there's a reason you didn't use a full view picture, i'm certain.

Looks too real to be real but I'm not changing my prediction.

I voted real but the one thing I see that makes me question it is the out of focus area in the lower left of the picture. Looks like it was very close to the lens when it was photographed.

This one is tough, but I went real. I'd love to see the whole thing though, regardless of real or model.

I'm gonna go with model here- probably 1:12 or 1:8 scale. There's just something about the diamond plate that looks a little... off.

I voted model because of the depth of field in the photo.
The edge of the interior closest to the camera is blurred.

Fairly close vote. Final vote 29 REAL, 36 MODEL.

And you got it... it's a model!

1/5 scale 1928 Mercedes SSK, completely scratchbuilt of metal, brass, etc. the "Wingrove way" (but not by Wingrove).

Never mind. I found it. $42,000! Yea, that is about right for that level of craftsmanship.
