      Unfortunately it looks like a modern decorator piece, most likely mass produced (might still be hand made/assembled, but not unique). The cheesy silver dry brushing on the wheels, exhaust, etc are a good indicator of that.

      It will still probably look good up on a shelf, but isn't a collector piece. Some folks still like them though.
