It does includes a detailed landing gear as well as the covers of the wheel wells to give the appearance of in-flight. There is a stand included.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The box measures 8.5 inches by 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches.
