Zoomlion is one of the largest Chinese construction machine manufacturers.  The ZRS326 is a single drum road roller with an operating weight of 26 tonnes.

The model maker is not stated.  It was distributed by NZG with a part number of vakf0003.

Packaging

It comes in a Zoomlion branded box with the model held within two plastic formers.

There were no defects or missing parts.

There is some information about the real compactor printed on the box.

Detail

Underneath, there are scrapers on the drum, and the steering hydraulic rams are modelled.  The rest of the underside is simple, with just the scale marked on.  The metal rear wheels have bolt heads and nice rubber treaded tyres with a robust tread pattern.

At the front the smooth drum is metal, with a metallic paint finish, and the side frames are nicely detailed with indentations and precise paint and graphics. 

The pivot point has simple detailing and textured steps lead to the cab.  The cab is modelled well with nicely detailed doors and inside the controls and seat look good, with Zoomlion printed on the console.  The mirrors are plastic. 

The rear of the machine has detail within the casting and a tiny Zoomlion badge.  Grille positions on top are formed and there is an exhaust. 

Features

The rubber tyres roll nicely and the drum is smooth in action.

The pivoted steering works but the angle is very restricted. 

Quality

The model has a quality feel with a high metal content. 

The paintwork and graphics are very good.

Price

It is reasonable value.

Overall

Models of Chinese machines are often in a larger scale so it is interesting to see one in 1:50.  It is a pleasant model of good quality although the functionality is limited.
