The model

The Britains 1:32 Muddy JCB 86 c-2 Midi Excavator is a robust model with large amounts of metal. It has good play value with many moving parts. The models can stand some abuse although they do have small detailing parts.

Mainly aimed at the toy market, the model seems fairly accurate to the prototype. No external pipework is represented. however the cab does have the operating levers.

The tracks and wheels move, as does the body. The bucket arm is articulated at all points using robust pins..

The cab features a non working light and an adjustable mirror! The mirror arm is metal.

Conclusion

overall these are great value models at £26.99 RRP, good for the kids in the sand pit and accurate enough to be collectable. The box provides some useful information about the prototype.
