This is a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van and this version of the model is in the colour of Nooteboom's Red Line Series


The model comes in a Nooteboom branded box which holds the model within plastic formers inside an expanded polystyrene tray. 

The review model had no defects or missing pieces.

A sheet of peel-off graphics is included to personalise the number plates to one of a number of European countries.  A pointer tool to assist opening the doors is also included.


The chassis baseplate is plastic is detailed with the transmission, exhaust system and spare wheel.   The tyres are mounted on good looking wheels.  At the rear the van can be configured with a towing hitch.

At the front there are nicely modelled grilles with a silver Mercedes-Benz logo.  The lights look convincing and the number plate holder can be decorated with a number plate of choice from a sticky backed sheet.

There appears to be a fleet number on the front wings and the doors have mirrors with built-in indicator lights.  Door handles are modelled in a realistic way.  The body sides have sharp graphics including chevrons on the lower edges.

The inside of the cab is detailed including instrument clusters and pedals.

At the rear the door fixtures are modelled with the hinges appearing on the large side.  The roof has a nice ribbing in the casting.


Different number plates can be fitted.  A towing hitch can be fitted.  The front axle has a moderate angle of steer achievable.

The rear doors open to a wide angle, and they swing easily. 

The sliding side door opens fully.

The cab doors open to a less than full angle.


This is a nice quality model. 

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


The model is good value.


MarGe has produced a very pleasant large scale model of the Sprinter.  It goes well with related models in the same scale.


The model became available in March 2019., and has appeared in a variety colours.
