Let see what is in the box, popping the lid. On top is the typical fold out instruction sheet/booklet. Referencing Model Master paints for the colors used on the Chinook.
Next are a set of decals which also has some stenciling, walkways and 3 scheme options. RAF, US Army and Royal Australian Air Force.
Light grey hard plastic. But not brittle. The fuselage halves have a separate lower section. Engraved panel lines, a bit deep but not too bad. With Italeri it can be hit or miss on some of their kits, but this one so far is pretty good. Stringers and but light on the details within the interior.
