Comments

Universal Hobbies original metal model. No mirror. There are some mounting defects visible closely: the left headlight mounted askew, dribbling chrome surround, etc. There is also a defect (bump?) on the front wing. Inadmissible on a car of such a price (in real life)!

Weight (to be taken into account if car loading): 13 g.
