Plus Model has a big selection of 1/35 scale model accessories in their catalogue, all very useful for dioramas and vignettes. This review covers a set of various canisters in different sizes used in household and industrial settings: Plastic Cans (468).
The kit is packed in a typical Plus Model box, featuring a large image showing the contents of the set. Opening the box reveals a multimedia kit consisting of resin pieces, PE fret and a decal sheet.
The set includes 30 canisters of different sizes cast in grey resin. The resin looks really good and upon closer inspection I found no evidence of any casting imperfections. Larger pieces are cast each on its own resin pour block, while the smaller pieces share a longer block which should be fairly easy to remove.
The largest containers feature separate PE handles; these should be attached to small protrusions on each side of the resin container. The handles are thin, and Iím seriously considering an idea of gluing two handles together to give them some extra thickness.
The decal sheet consists of various labels and symbols. The print is good and complements the cans really well, offering identification for storing hazardous materials, different liquids or waste.
Plastic Cans set from Plus Model offers a nice variety of 1/35 scale resin cans in different sizes. Consisting of 30 resin pieces, PE handles and a decal sheet, the set provides a great value for the money and should be a welcomed addition to any modern day diorama.
