Attached to the wings are a pair of air to air missiles and attached to the fuselage is a gun pod.

 

The maker of the model, Italeri, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring.

 

Unlike bigger models, there is nothing to assemble for these models. All weapons and fuel tanks are already attached to the model. One just needs to open the pack and display it (or play with it).

 

The packaging labels these model as "Collectible Product" and "Not suitable for children under 14 years".

The box measures 7.5 inches by 7.5 inches by 2.75 inches.
