This is a massive kit from Hobby Boss with a lot of surprise in terms of kit contents since not only are there plastic and PE parts, but also tubing and metal rods are provided in order to increase the level of details. Contents of the kit are as follows: - 1447 plastic parts on 35 sprues - 51 rubber tires - 6 rubber suspension dampers - 157 PE parts on 11 frets - 31 metal upgrade parts - 2 springs with different diameters - 2 strings with different diameters - 4 different types of PVC tubing - Metal axes - Chain - Tacks (pins) - Decals - 50 page instruction set The contents of the kit are impressive to depict not only the M1070 tractor but also the M1000 trailer in one kit. Both vehicles can be built separately. You will need to go through an intense and difficult build in numerous steps: 32 for the tractor and 23 for the trailer. My first impression is the fact that this plastic kit is definitely not for the beginner. You will also need some space on your workbench to accommodate this large kit. The instructions are pretty simple and clear, hopefully Hobby Boss did a great job on the accuracy of the instructions.
