Unpainted model, therefore translucent body. Mirror moulded with the body. Globular inserted headlights, one of which is crooked. The grille is too thin. Rear lights painted.

The wheels and tyres are of a correct size. Pretty innovation: the rear axle is not one piece, giving the suspension, whose arms are figured, much more realism. But, consequently, the wheels get a little skewed. We cannot have everything…

The height of the front door window is 4.7 mm, against 4.2 for Brekina. Who is right? A quick and necessarily rough calculation on a catalogue drawing gives a scale value of 4.6 mm.
