A metal stand where the model can be attached for display is included. A metal display stand is included. The wheels can roll freely and are quite smooth (so be careful where you put this thing, or it could roll downhill). The fuselage is all metal.
The maker of the model, Air Force 1, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clearly defined.
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 13 inches by 12 inches by 3.5 inches.
