Value Gear resin stowage products have long been among the best resin additions for modelers looking to detail their builds in nearly any scale. Spanning stowage from WWII through more modern and even sci-fi settings, these pieces really pop with detail and add immensely to the scenes they’re placed in. In this case, we are looking at set #11-- another stowage set for your StuG in 1/35 scale. While many of the sets are geared towards certain manufacturers’ kits, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t place them nearly anywhere, as you’ll see below.
This set contains 25 original pieces unique to this set and is made up of crates, packs, sacks, and tarps in various configurations. The set provides various arrangements that can fit practically any modern or futuristic piece you may be working on. I have arranged the three photos of the pieces prior to paint in the various groups- rolls solo or in sets of 2 or 3, packs and sacks solo or in sets, and crates and cardboard boxes.
Cleanup was minimal, and restricted mainly to just a bit of flash on the bottom side that was swiftly shaved off. I used some AMMO One Shot primer to prepare some of the pieces for painting. Details really pop out when painted-especially in the example of the cardboard boxes. I don’t really have a piece at present I am working on that these would fit, but there are endless possibilities and I plan on using them on my next modern tank build.
Steve from Value Gear has put out another excellent set of detail pieces for the modeler here. The interchangeability of the pieces means that truly no two scenes are really alike...and they really add to the overall look of your diorama. Steve’s booth is always a popular place to visit at the shows, and we can easily see why. My thanks to Steve from Value Gear and IPMS-USA for this review sample.
