This is an absolutely beautiful model kit. It has an incredible level of detail inside and out, is very easy to assemble, and is a very good size. It is easily several times larger than a typical 40K Chimera or Rhino, for example, and is about the same cost (technically about 10% more expensive, but it's easy to find sales). A far better buy than either of those models, in terms of detail and fun factor, and given that you probably only want one of these for a typical Star Wars Legion force, just more affordable altogether. The model comes with a base and a reinforced clear plastic peg to give it that hovering effect, as well as the cards you need to use in the game. My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is the arrangement of parts on the sprue. I'm used to Gunpla model kits (Japanese giant robots), and while they have tremendous numbers of sprues with a bewildering array of parts, they also have a logical layout system, with each sprue having a clear alphabetical label (A, B, C, etc.), and all the parts on a particular sprue being grouped numerically, so part A1 is close to part A2. While the A5 Speeder Truck doesn't have a huge number of sprues, they weren't as well organized, seeming to be designed by the efficiency of fitting the pieces on the sprues rather than the ease of finding the parts. For example, part A1 is not necessarily close to part A2, nor are they even necessarily on the same sprue. I did have to do a bit of hunting to find which bits went together for a particular assembly. If I had the model to do over again, I would decide to magnetize the roof and windshield, rather than glue them in place. I did do a fair amount of work detailing the interior, and it's a shame that my efforts can only be glimpsed through the side doors and a weathered windscreen. I should note that the model has a very modular construction, and it is entirely possible to leave the sides, top, bottom, and windscreen unglued without the model falling apart, due to how well, and how many pegs, hold the thing together.
