This product is sloppily made with welding drip marks on both sides of the bomb where as pictured, there are none. I also measured it at 3.5' tall. It is NOT 4' which they described it as. Is it cute? Yes. Worth purchasing? Not so much.

Exactly th size and weight expected. Disappointed that it came a bit rusty and leaves a mark on paper and rusty smudge on hands whenever handled. I cleaned it and applied some furniture wax - hope that solved the rust and dirt problem.

              Overall a good solid piece that should last forever, but much smaller than expected. I'm happy with it but I believe it is over priced for the size.
