I am back again with another of these fantastic figures from Construction Battalion.

I have a lot of fun with these figures as they are so diverse in their potential use; and they are very high quality.

The kit comprises nine cream-coloured resin parts that require only minimal cleanup. Four parts are for the figure, and the remaining five are for the wheelbarrow.

Everything went together without problems, but make sure that you have the figure's hands aligned with the wheelbarrow handles.

The figure and barrow were painted with Vallejo Acrylics, apart from the flesh tones which were done with Testor's Model Master enamels.

The dirt in the barrow is from Mig Productions' brick dust pigments mixed with water.

Overall, I was impressed with this release, although I was slightly disappointed that the head was identical to the item in the jackhammer set. But, hey, its not the end of the world and I would certainly recommend this set.
