About the kit
Next to the very similar Ostmodels BA-10m:
Gaz AA wheels come in many flavors. The best by far are the 1/72 injection molded Pegasus ones, sanded down to scale. From left to right : SHQ (wheel too large, tire too narrow), Matador resin (too small), Ostmodels (OK but crude detail), Pegasus.
This is a pre-built kit which is falling to pieces.No headlights are provided. The fron tpart of the rear fenders should be straight and almost vertical. Quality-wise it has multiple air bubbles and the resin is very brittle. Other than that it is accurate and should look good when completed.
