Have you ever needed some items, like cardboard boxes, to add that finishing touch to a modeling project? Value Gear has just what you need. This company has produced a complete line of stowage items. They are great supplements for armor projects or dioramas of all types.

This set contains 25 1/35 cast resin cardboard boxes. There is a lot of variety here. The boxes come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Each box has a different level of wear and tear. Some are smushed, while others are dog-eared. Others are fresh and new. Some are even shown as taped shut. The resin used is a medium brown color, approximating the color of dark cardboard.

The castings are nicely done. Only minor sanding is needed to clean up the edges. Generally, the surfaces are smooth, but a couple of the boxes have a somewhat grainy surface. The boxes held primer and acrylic paint well after being scrubbed with soap and water. The kit does not provide any generic decals for markings, so you might need to search your old decal sheets for miscellaneous stencils.

Overall, these accessory pieces are nicely done, reasonably priced, and will add to your models. I highly recommend this set.
