This kit contains four light-gray resin sprues with a total of seven parts, which are finely cast and contain an amazing amount of detail given the small scale. The parts are very delicate. I highly recommend that you use a fine-tooth hobby saw to remove them. Any attempt to snip them with a sprue cuter will result in damage.

No instructions are provided; however, the construction is very intuitive. I began with using CA to bond the back wall and floor and used the grid lines of a cutting matt to ensure a 90-degree angle. Next, I added the left-hand side wall and after the parts were sufficiently bonded, I attached the two parts which make up the commode seat. Lastly, I added the right-hand side and then the roof and door. The door has a nice little heart shaped opening, but this needs to be cleaned up a little bit to make the heart shape recognizable.

To finish the latrine, I airbrushed it with acrylic primer and when the primer was dry, I hand painted it using light coats of acrylic. To bring out the fine detail of the wood grain, I coated all the surfaces with a light wash.

This is an interesting accessory and has many uses, albeit, mostly likely with 1/72 dioramas.

Thank you very much to Hauler for providing this high-quality resin kit, and thank you to IPMS for the opportunity!
