Two-piece model (hull and turret), hollow bottom. Model measures 3.9 cm long x 1.9 cm wide x 3 cm high. Hull is faceted and has fenders over all wheels. Some small packs and what might be a fuel can are riding Turret is six-sided with flattened side angles, with "large" and "short" coaxial gun barrels. The guns are flat, not bored.

Our sample hull had a visible seam all the way around, with some flash, but looks easily fixable except at two spots involving the tires. The wheels are reinforced with extra metal, invisible from most angles unless viewed from the ends at a low angle.

Our sample turret had a seam with some flash, easily fixable. There is a slight "lip" on the front upper hatch (again, easy to fix), and an odd spot on the bottom of the base of the gun barrels (hard to see, probably not worth messing with). Rear of turret is rough and could use filing; also, end of the main gun barrel. The turret and hull fit well together, though some file-work could reduce the turret's tendency to rock slightly.

The overall style is impressionist, covering all of the basic features of the vehicle without detailing individual bolts or precise tire patterns.
