This is another look at one of the SB Scotia accessories that are currently available through SB Models. Stewart of SB models has been developing the range for about 4 years now, time permitting.
The item comes packed in a double zip plastic bag attached to a backing card showing the product and manufacturers details.
The crates are cast as a whole stack, showing 9 different boxes stacked in a random way. The detail on the boxes is very good, and all have a wood grain effect. Cast in a light grey resin the detail is sharp and the crates are well cast, with no damage or air bubbles that I could see.
This is a very handy bulk item for ground dioramas, trucks, or boats. There will be a little clean up needed on the base as there is a thin plug, but if you were ground mounting this item it could probably be ignored.
Normal precautions apply when working with resin.
These ‘crates’ are very reasonably priced coming in at £3.00, which is super value compared to many smaller resin items I have seen. A nice size and variety of crates are provided.
There are also a set of ‘Crates 3’ which are equally useable and in a similar style, and a set of Large Crates that are individual items, so fill your boots if you need some well cast and detailed crates at a very reasonable price.
Highs: Well cast with good detail. Extremely well priced.Lows: None.Verdict: Highly Recommended.
