The kit consists of: 345 parts in tan plastic 126 Individual click together working track links 122 etched parts 1 length of fine chain 70 small copper beads 1 length of copper wire 18 vinyl poly caps 1 decal sheet 1 16 page instruction booklet Etched and other parts. The overall fit of parts is good but a little trimming is needed with some body panel fit but nothing excessive and easily dealt with and there is scope for adding additional detail as with any kit. Moulding is very well done with clean crisp details with very little if any flash or pin marks evident on the parts with just the usual mould seams.
