The model is painted with photorealistic reflective textures and has all possible moving parts with realistically made undercarriage with operating suspension, rolling wheels and nose steering wheels. The cockpit canopy opens to show the interior with operating levers, pedals and control columns for both front and rear seat. It has also an operating airbrake.
