These models are French imports, so the branding and packaging are all in French.

This truck model is made of a combination of metal and plastic parts. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.

For this particular model the anti aircraft gun can rotate 360 degrees but can't elevate.

The maker of the model, Atlas, 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, machine guns, 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 really nice packaging. The model itself is attached (via screws) to a plastic base. The base measures about 7.5 inches by 3 and at one side of the base is some info about the model such as the type of vehicle. The model comes enclose within a disposable clam shell and this in turn comes inside a basic cardboard box.

The mode can be detached from the base and the wheels are made of rubber and can roll.

These models are not toys, they will not last long if played with or if taken for a spin in the sandbox.
