Functions perfectly – if you press the roof periscope, you can hear the ‘gun shot’, and the figures move from side to side to shoot the enemy! This is the 2nd version with plastic spotlights (to dazzle the enemy!). Earlier issue had metal spotlights. Occasional minor mark to the paint finish.
A very attractive item on display.
