is a resin kit with PE parts that comes in a folded cardboard box,
with 2 plastic bags, one containing the resin parts, the other the
PE frets (2) and the decal sheet.
The resin parts are finely moulded with no flash. Some of the parts
are small and delicate, but look to fit together nicely. Some parts
have come away from the sprue, but all are present.
The finest detail is on the PE which again looks straightforward,
if including tiny, delicate parts.
instructions are extensive and appear comprehensive.
They include directions for the construction of the support frame
for the rear body tarpaulin, suggesting the use of stainless steel
tube (not supplied). Nor is any material for the tarpaulin supplied.
I suggest that any modeller with the skills to address this model
should be able to deal with these issues.
There is also an extensive set of painting instructions, complimented
by an extensive sheet of decals.
I have only one criticism of the model, namely that the cab is moulded
fully closed down, which in my photo gallery is virtually unseen.
It would be very difficult, however, to do otherwise in this scale
and material. The upper cab is moulded as a separate block and I intend
to use this as a 3D plan to construct a cab from sheet plastic.
