Name Škoda PA-II
Producer  AIR Czech, Czech republic
Packing Carton box with b/w picture on the top

Quality The body of the vehicle is very well cast as one full part including fine details /rivets atc./. Other smaller parts are also well detailed /tire profile, mg MG barrel muzzle covers atc./ as well as cast.  
Instruction sheet Simple graphic instruction sheet including camouflage schema of Czechoslovak Army vehicles.
Decals Not, but kit includes license plates printed on paper /just cut out and place on the model – more realistic than decals/ and stencil for vehicle number and Czechoslovak flag.
General Impression Perfect kit, but it will need more careful work to complete it right. Especially lights can simply get squinting if you don’t care enough! J
Note This technically rare armored car called also ”turtle” was produced in limited series only. Despite of this fact some vehicles were exported to Austria in 1927 where served in Vienna police units. Even one of them actively fought against Russians during city defense in 1945. Czechoslovak army used these vehicles until 1927 when they were passed on police units. There served in border patrols until German occupation.
