Too bad the paint is a little light on the side I usually display that’s hidden in the package
Inaccurate but looks better with some engine detail. Forgot the before-after photo.

Update 1: before photo courtesy of Matchthebox

Update 2: Proper Photos. I’ve also added some permanent marker details. It not feels a lot better than when I was viewing it through the blister when I first got it two or three weeks ago.

I usually display my diecasts facing the left but this one feels great at the above angle with the cover removed. Now I’ll need to find a good display case. A 1:43 case would be perfect but I’m not taking a 1:43 out of it’s original case just for this.
