Couple of very small marks to the paint head-on, and that’s about it.
The colourful card plinth is complete and bright with a little minor ruffling at wheel slots. Couple of very small wheel slot tears. Version with a monochrome central panel over which the car is placed.
Plenty of information on plinth reverse.
