Aerobonus latest release is an oil draining cart used as a catch basin for motor oil. The set consists of eight resin parts and a decal sheet. The parts are in typical gray resin and are flawless. Parts removal is easy with careful trimming needed on the cart body and handle. Take your time and use a razor saw. A light sanding and you are good to go. The wheels are tiny as are the bolts to hold the handle. Be careful and things will clean up quickly.

I did notice one problem and that is the two bars that extend out of the front of the cart to hold the handle. Mine were broken off so i sanded them smooth and made a new set with strip in less than five minutes. Aires has protectors built into the casting block to prevent this but it didn't work in this case.

Assembly was a breeze. Glue the wheels on and then the handle to the strips I added and then the bolt heads. Done! Painting is also a breeze as the cart is yellow. The wheels are painted black and then it was on to weathering. Since it is an oil cart, it needed some grime. I added black and raw umber washes, let them mostly dry and streak them liked drained oil. I flat coated the kit and added silver with a pencil and called it done.

This is another great kit and highly recommended. It would look great sitting on a tarmac or ships deck near a leaky Skyraider or the like. My thanks to Aires for the opportunity to build and paint this kit.
