It was encased in the glass case that you see in the photos. The glass is a very dark smoky glass and it is difficult to see the tank, and the tank is not 100% secure in it so it was necessary to open up the case and remove it.
On the side it says Kodiac Island prison camp. Constructed from scrap tin cans by North Koreans. There is also a seal from the veterans of foreign wars with the original owners name, number, date, etc.
This tank is highly detailed. The tracks move and are constructed of interlocking pieces. Each tire/wheel moves as well.
A couple of the entry hole covers are either missing or were not included. Some of the pieces have the original color on them, but the majority of the pieces are tin metal or silver in color. Please view the photos as they are part of the description. Please ask all questions before purchasing.
