It holds its shape fairly well. The playset is missing its instructions, catalogue, figure stands, gunner cockpit canopy and a blast door which Ive tried to show in photo 5, apart from that it is complete. It assembles as it should and holds a sturdy construction.
There are a couple more issues that Ill point out. The base has some pen on it which can be seen in photo 2 in the yellow area under the bridge not sure if this can be removed? The trash compactor sections locating tab has come away (can be seen in photo 8).
But it still fits into the playset snuggly and works fine without it , otherwise the set is very very good, especially when considering its age!! Grab a piece of vintage Star Wars and Palitoy history!
