The Kit

Contents


4 Large metal boxes
2 Medium metal stowage boxes
3 small metal stowage boxes
3 small Wooden stowage boxes
2 Cardboard Boxes
1 Open stowage box plus lid

Review

With a variety of sizes included in the set, there should be something here to satisfy most modellers needs. The wooden boxes have a fine grain texture in the moulding, while the hinges and latches are very nicely rendered on the steel crates. The open box is a nice addition and adds and interesting variation to the set. The cardboard boxes are also very well cast with realistic folds moulded to simulate the top and bottom of the box. If there is one criticism, some of the plugs are situated on the side of some of the pieces which is going to require careful clean up if the side is to be displayed, this is a small point which doesn't take anything away from the overall quality of the set, just some of the pieces may require careful positioning to hide any loss of detail

SUMMARY
Highs: Good Variety of items in different sizes. The level of detail is very high. The addition of an open crate is a nice touch.
Lows: Maybe some of the moulding plugs could have been in a better position.
Verdict: A great little set from plus model with a good variety of sizes and types of boxes, suitable for any number of applications.
