Wear is consistent with age and use. Old age splits on the back panels, numerous chips to the layers of painted surface. Wear to the applied stars on the interior central section. Painted surface refreshed throughout, with undercoat of blue paint. Very minor seam separations. Doors work well, wear to the gilt-metal grilles. Structurally sound. Charming model and grand in scale. Impressive in person.
