Manufacturer AER Moldova
Packing Paperboard box with parts enclosed in two zip-lock plastic bags.
Kit type esin model kit of about 45 parts and four soft rubber tires.

Overall quality of the resin molding is very good and is considerably improved over AER resin models produced several years ago.  Detail is crisp and well formed.  The small resin parts are cast well and I noted few air bubbles to fill.  Clean-up of the resin flash will be easy and there are few pour plugs to cut off.  The only complaint is a little rubber flash on the four tires.

Instructions Instructions contain a short history and two photos of the weapon.  Directions are the exploded view type, each piece is numbered and arrows directing placement help.

General Impression  & Note This is a model I have been looking forward to in 1/72 scale for ten years.  It has previously been available as a 1/76 scale white metal wargaming kit only.  Quality is very good and I commend AER for their improvement in quality and ease of assembly.  It was a very important air defense weapon used in the thousands by the USSR and by the Germans and their Axis Allies.
