Comes in Tamiya's usual high quality packaging and carry case. Worth keeping in its own right.
Good thorough preparation will pay dividends in the long run. As per usual practice, I empty all the essential larger parts into a plastic see through box with lid. The smaller parts into another case with multiple compartments of different sizes also with ahinged lid. Most of the tools I need are within easy reach in a clear plastic toolbox. These can be put away safely in between modelling sessions.

Battery and radio equipment needs to be purchased separately.
