On the outside the model has painted grills and warning labels on the sides and on top. The main cilinders have dual working lights on top. The grille on the front is a separate plastic piece with sharp detailing. The crawlers consist of nivcely detailed individually linked metal pads. Most, but not all, track rollers are functioning, the carrier rollers are glued in placce and thus don't function.
