Missile measures 14.75 inches high and is made of plastic. The missile body is mint with no broken parts - no scratches - no wear. The decals are very good. There is some black missing on the roll patter at the top (see photo) and the same amount missing on the back base roll pattern. The red 'US ARMY' is mint on the back but part of the 'R' is missing on the front. The base is exc and has a metal plate that reads 'US Army Sprint Antimissile Missile - MArtin Marietta'. There are no touch ups/repair and no cracks. Insurance required on shipping.
