Thismodel is made of a combination of metal and plastic parts. It is a static model and does not move at all or has moving parts. The model comes attached (via tiny screws) to a plastic base that measures 8.25 inches long by 1.5 inches wide. The base is made to look like rail tracks and it has a sticker sign noting the country, type and year of the model depicted.
The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.
The maker of the model, Amercom, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. When they are painted in different color, say for example, shovels and ropes, they are indeed painted accurately.
These models come in what could be described as a disposable plastic shell pack. The packaging is very minimum, it is just big enough to enclose the vehicle and the cardboard backing to which the shell is attached is barely bigger than the lengths and width dimension of the vehicle.
