Wow, are these Construction Battalion guys getting popped out fast or what?

This figure was a lot of fun to build and paint. I really enjoy the many diverse options for finishing the subjects of this series.

Inside the box are five cream coloured resin pieces comprising the head, two arms, the body and a shovel with the hands moulded on the handle.

Cleanup was minimal, but take care with the handle of the shovel.

Construction was fast, although the hands must be exactly aligned for the pose to look correct.

I used a combination of Tamiya, Vallejo and Testor Model Master paints.

This is a great little figure with many possibilities -  military or civilian - for use in a diorama or vignette. Keep 'em coming!
