Plus Model, out of the Czech Republic, makes some of the neatest resin pieces for dioramas. They range from full-size parts to lots of add-ons that are really interesting. And now they make a resin kit of a toilet bowl. Yup, it’s a toilet. This is brilliant. All those home dioramas, shops, etc., that I have seen built, and there is never anywhere for the little resin guys to do their business. Now there is thanks to Plus Model.

The set is a nice three-piece resin set containing the bowl, seat and lid. With the pour stubs removed, you are ready for paint. I primed the resin and painted the bowl and seat Tamiya Gloss White. I wanted a wood finish for the lid and put down a base coat of Tamiya Buff. I then took a well-worn brush and streaked Tamiya Brown over the base coat and let it dry. I mixed Tamiya Transparent Red and Green in order to create a wood color, and then sprayed a final coat on the lid. My result was a nice, glossy lid. The parts were then glued together and the toilet was finished to the relief of 1/35 scale figures everywhere. Even with painting, it only took about an hour.

I definitely recommend this toilet for all diorama fans. Well-cast and very simple to build—not once did I feel the need to scream, “Curse you Tiny Toilet!”—it will make the difference in creating a detailed diorama. My thanks to Plus Model for the excellent review sample and IPMS/USA for the chance to build it.
