The overall quality of the model is much better then many of the western models. If you like for example Corgi, Matchbox or Dinky - It would not leave you disappointed. This brilliant, highly detailed 1/43 scale model of the Russian ( Soviet ) Yellow Taxi Cab vehicle is a must have for any taxi models collector. It carries the official federal taxi paint scheme of the Russian Municipal Taxi Cabs. Such vehicles were widely used in Russia in 1980-90, but there are still many of them now on the streets.
