The GAF album format was distributed only in the European market and was approximately contemporaneous with the North American G3 variant.

The cardstock album was a double gatefold design about 20cm wide and 21cm high when closed (some collectors refer to the package as an "8x8" packet-folder or album due to its Imperial dimensions, 8 inches wide and 8.25 inches high when closed). Inside, the reels were held in three plastic slots on the central panel; narratives for each of the twenty-one scenes were provided on the other three interior panels, seven per panel.
