This model is an exact copy of the wagon that rode the railways of the Soviet Union after the Civil war: a passenger two-axle third-class car manufactured at the "Red Putilovets" (former Putilov) factory in 1926; the car had 72 seats.
They were the first passenger wagons (length 14 m) that were released after the Civil war and all the destruction around. The design remained the same as of the pre-revolutionary wagons but still it had some changes in the construction of the car. These passenger railcars were produced in a good many and were the most common cars for local transportation in the period of 1920-1950 years. These wagons were mostly painted in green.
The model itself is very detailed and looks extremely realistic. The most interesting elements of construction such as an internal interior, a tambour, a toilet are carefully specified. The model even has plastic transparent windows!
The Passenger car has HO scale and is compatible with the other UMBUM's rolling stocks and buildings in HO scale. As HO is the most popular scale of model railway in the world, we can tell that this model would be compatible with the other wagons and buildings as well.
The Passenger car is made of durable cardboard of 0.5 millimeters thick; it has double-sided full-color printing and embossing (note that embossing is a unique technology for cardboard models!). The model could be easily assembled without glue or scissors. It is provided with colorful language independent step-by-step instructions.
