The detail is amazing! It is mounted on a stately wooden base stained and cleared. It measures 39 long 16 and 1/2 inches high and 11 and 1/2 inches wide approximately. The model weighs 22 pounds. The crate it goes in weighs 20 pounds also. Look the pictures over carefully this model is fine enough to display in a museum! This world war II workhorse helped us get our troops and equipment from sea to shore during battles like the one at Normandy. This model is a must for any World War II collection. The numbers P77A are painted on the side. The dimensions and weight will be in the listing. This model would look super cool with some items in the hold but it does not come with any. Removing it from the crate requires removal of some packing foam and some screws on the lid and base.
