There are two sprue sets and about 18 separate pieces in this kit. Overall the detail is very nice and some of the hardware is very detailed. There is no visible flash in the kit, and the plastic is of the soft gray variety. I did notice a rail had broken on my set, but I am not sure this didn't happen during the photo shooting process. Either way it will be easy to repair. The woodgrain effect is very detailed and should still come through well (scale-wise) once painted.
I would imagine this cart will work for any diorama set in Europe. Besides working for farm and urban settings, this cart would also typically be used by civilians fleeing war zones.
The photos speak for themselves in terms of the quality and design of the cart. For the price of these MiniArt pieces ($9-12 USD) I think it's a fair price for not having to scratch build one.
