Nice set.

This is a model of containerised site offices.  it is made of high quality plastic.

Packaging

The model set comes in windowed boxes with the models held in folded cardboard. 

The review set had no missing parts or defects.

The individual containers are fully assembled.  No instructions are provided, but assembly of the full office block is straightforward.

Detail

The office units have textured surfaces and that includes detail on the roof.  The windows and doors are formed well, and the door handles are a nice touch.

The stairs have thin handrails and a mesh landing floor.

Features

The units can be assembled in the suggested configuration, or in other ways. 

They pose well with other models either as part of a diorama or as loads for suitable trucks.

As the units are light they can be used as crane loads, and hooks can be attached at the corner points.

Quality

This is a nice quality set. 

The finish is good.

Price

They are not cheap but represent reasonable value overall.

Overall

This is a a very good set which is flexible in use, and gives a variety of display options.
