Many thanks to the Hauler Brengun Company and the IPMS Reviewer Corps for allowing me to review this unique diorama accessory! Hauler Brengun is a prolific contributor to the IPMS Reviewer system and I am very pleased to report on my experience with these excellent accessories, USN wheel chocks in 2 scales.

These chocks are great addition to any USN aircraft of the WW2 era. The chocks are virtually identical, other than scale. They are cleanly cast in gray resin that is not too brittle or soft. The chocks are excellent replicas of the style used during World War 2. They are very easily detached from the pour plugs and assembled. A little cleanup with a square file is required and the chocks are adjustable!

The only caution I have is to be very careful of the locking pins. Bregun anticipated this, and thoughtfully included extra pins. I drilled holes for the pins in the adjustable/sliding chocks, and trimmed the locking pin lengths so the chocks remained adjustable for different size tires.

I finished the chocks with a pale yellow base coat overlain by weathering tones of browns and grays. Acrylic paints adhered very well to the cleaned parts. They look great securing my models in my display cabinets!

I highly recommend these little accessory gems. They are quick and fun add-ons. Thank you so much to Hauler-Brengun for sending these chocks for review! Hats off to the hard-working Reviewer Corps staff for posting, editing, and all the other tasks associated with getting reviews out there for the world to see and appreciate!
