Hi, Mike, I have set #2 and will be reviewing it shortly. I'll be sure to address your issue and give it a look-see.

thanks for the criticism Mike, the gaps might be a little big, been learning as I go, and every word from someone helps to make things better. I am new at this. the stuff I have gotten over the years is all over the map as far as this topic is concerned. some good and some bad, some of them have badly exagerated woodgrain but fantastic little nail holes and others have great wood grain on top but sides are smooth, and some are just fantastic... I saw an itallian ammo crate set online by model victoria that was a true work of art (if you have not seen this one go look cos it is amazing). this is something I will keep in mind while making future sets. here is a pic with a variety of crates to compared Dragon Looks the best of all... to me Left Side tamiya dragon 75 Academy 75 Academy 88 Middle verlinden verlinden verlinden Academy (I think green molded plastic) Right Set #1 Painted Set #1 not painted Set #2 Set #2 Set #2 and another pic a friend made that has a crate from Crates #1

Thanks for the mention Darren, It feels really good and encouraging to know that I am on the right track for things people like, want, or need. I have a few more new things coming out soon and have a couple events coming up... I will be doing Demos and selling Value Gear Stuff at IPMS Ireland Nationals In Sept. and also might be sharing a table with someone at Telford Show in November... 4 halls models everywhere... I am so excited I almost needed to change my Nappie!...

thanks for the kind words, my goal is variety, new options and to be affordable... wish I had the skill to keep up with all these ideas I have in my head. I am not a master sculpter and takes me a long time to make masters of things other than tarps and crates... backpacks are the big stumbling block now.... but I will figure it out and learning constantly.

Got some of his stuff off eBay. I was very Happy with it. The pieces look tight, nice and clean. The material was easy to paint. He does use any stuff to stop it from sticking so there are no issues. An excellent product, all the pieces have enough tie down point to look realistic.
