The XCMG RP1256 is a tracked road paver.


The model comes in a branded box which has Chinese text.  Inside the box, the model is contained within expanded polystyrene trays. 

The review model had no missing parts or defects.

No information is provided about the real machine. 


There is detail underneath, with the belt chains and belts modelled in metal.  The plastic tracks are mounted on simple track frames with scrapers at the rear. 

At the rear the screed has a metal central section with nicely textured surfaces.  The extendible screeds are modelled entirely in plastic.  They are detailed with a good colour match.

The operator's area has plastic grab rails, boxes and a nice textured floor.  The seats are textured and the colour of the plastic side panels was slightly off on the review model.  The operator's console is very detailed. The roof is metal and has plastic lights.

The engine panels have nicely formed grilles although the look of the side panels is adversely affected by the large silver hinges. Under the panels is some engine detailing.

At the front the hopper floor is modelled in plastic.  The sides are metal with sharp graphics.  The rollers for engaging a tipper's wheels are modelled as a solid part.


The tracks are solidly fixed and do not rotate.

The screed can be raised and lowered, and is also extendible for width.

The hopper sides can be closed in but they cannt lie flat as the two stage rams that control them have been modelled as single stage only.

The engine covers on both sides open fully.


This model is solidly made.  It is mostly metal with some plastic parts.

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


It is reasonable value given the size.


This is a decent looking road paver model, although the functionality is less than on some smaller 1:50 scale models, and the model seems simpler as a result.


Hopper sides cannot flatten fully.
Profile view.
Underneath is detailed.
Detailed console.  Hinges on the side panel are unsightly.
Two stage rams are functional as single stage only.
