Thanks to Matho Models for this sample.
Modern personnel carriers are often seen with boxes of bottled water or soda in and about the crew compartment and cargo areas. As modelers, these can add a splash of color to otherwise drab subjects.
This item, packed in a zip lock bag with a hanger and cardstock backing. It provides 32 boxes on a sheet of paper. There are six each 12 and 24 can cases of Coke, four 36 can cases of Pepsi, four each of three sized cases of Evian water and four cases of Spa water. Each case needs to be carefully cut from the sheet of 0.1 mm paper using a straight edges and a sharp X-Acto type blade. Each box is printed as one piece and the folds should be very lightly scored to get a sharp edge. The paper responds well to a small drop of white glue and looks about right in scale. The printing is quite fine and most of the labelling is readable. Of particular note, the inner surface is printed to look like the heavy card stock of soda cases. There are no instructions in the kit, but the website provides a directions if you haven’t worked with this type of box before.
