The quality of the moulding is absolutely excellent
with only a few parts showing any flash - easily enough cleaned-up with a sharp knife. A few (inevitable) mould-lines are present, but are small enough to be easily cleaned up with the gentle use of some medium grade wet'n dry paper. Construction (as can be seen from the scans) begins with the floor of the cart and adding the two angled strakes to hold the side pieces. The second part is attaching the wheels and the front part of the chassis which can be left loose to allow the front wheels to be positioned in almost any angle. Four parts which are included, are similar to tank hawsers, it may, with these, be desirable to replace these with sections with either cable of an appropriate thickness or even, as can be seen on other carts, with fine chain. This is a model which most diorama builders will find an enormous amount of uses for.
The quality of the basic kit is as good, if not better as anything done by Masterbox up until now and indicates that the company is at the the top of their game. The qualty of moulding is exceptional, the possibilities that I suggested above are only a few which could be applied. It could be used as part of a German supply column - even as an improvised ambulance in Soviet hands. It's also, I have little doubt, going to appear in future dioramas as part of a barricade. The time period it could cover is equally impressive. It could be used as part of any diorama in almost any epoch in the last 500 years. and will be equally useful whether it's accompanied by Janissaries, German Infantry or NATO peace-keeping troops. At first glance it seems like a 'useful' release - the reality is that it'll become one of the most useful in years...
