Just a few minor marks to the paint finish. Note this model has been factory fitted without a steering wheel (a sealed unit, so it has not gone astray).
The colourful card plinth on which car and rhino sit is a most attractive display piece. Crisp, bright and clean.
Vividly-coloured backdrop for this model. Both end pull tabs are present and firmly attached. No wheel slot tears.
