Value Gear resin products are well known to most modelers for the excellent quality resin stowage and gear to use on your models and diorama scenes. Owner Steve Munsell is a quality guy who, more often than not, throws in some extra pieces into most of the packages and one package can often inhabit more than a couple builds if used wisely- or you can completely deck out one model if you wish. His 1/16 product lines are growing as more companies release more 1/16 scale kits.

What’s Inside the Box

This set contains a small zip bag with five 75mm ammo crates for whatever 1/16 scale StuG or Panzer is sitting in your stash. A card with preparation and priming instructions are included. The quality is excellent in this scale and one might want to ding them up a bit to add some variety to the five– but the details of the wood grain, nail holes for the cross slats, and strap enclosures are amazing.

I primed them with my favorite primer for resin- Krylon Flat Black primer. After this cured, I then base coated with some Vallejo basic skin tone. This was then followed up with some AMMO Oil Brushers to recreate the darker streaks of the wood grains. After this was thoroughly dry, I used some of my favorite washes from Citadel for wood- Seraphim Sepia to really make it pop. They are now ready to go whenever I get to building that Andy’s Sherman kit!

My sincere thanks to Value Gear and IPMS-USA for the review samples.
