It is small, neat, precise and fun to make. Minimal decals, sane camouflage, precise fit, innovative design — all good modeling stuff. The only issue I noted was the design of the tires. The tread portions are composed of four interlocking segments. To ensure a more seamless fit, two of the four segments have very small tabs cast into their ends that fit into corresponding semicircular depressions in the “tire” part. This is shown in the instructions but you have to look for them. I missed seeing them on the first two tires, hence a few fine seams remain.

My little driver figure is dimly seen inside.  Just like the real thing.
