introduction

Value gear is a relatively new company on the market, and they make sets of resin stowage which are very well-cast and can be used on all kinds of vehicles. Armorama has been reviewing these sets as they come out, and I invite you to look them up on the review section.

the contents

You receive a zip lock bag which contains 18 parts ( It says 19 on the package but I got 18).

The review

So you get a total of 18 pieces in eight styles. They are all cast in gray resin with no casting blocks and no casting residue.

They have pretty sharp detail and very nice wood grain.

I like these boxes because you can use them on a diorama or as stowage on an armored vehicle and they fit in any time period. There are no painting guides,but since they are wooden crates it isn't hard to figure out how to paint them.

Conclusion

Even though I got 18 instead of 19 wooden crates, I'd say this set is well worth the money and can really look nice on a diorama.

Thanks to Value Gear for providing this review sample. Be sure to say you saw these crates reviewed here when ordering.
SUMMARY
Highs: A lot of content for the price (well worth the money). No casting blocks or casting residue. Nice detail
Lows: Except for getting 18 instead of 19 pieces (which I don't really mind), there are no lows.
Verdict: Very nice set for any 1/35 builder, well worth the money.

Comments

Thanks for the review Sven, 18 is the correct # of pieces for Crates Set #4, Crates set #3 is 19 pieces and when I first started casting them I confused myself and mis-labeled some packages... glad you like the bits... as for painting i have some pictures here, sometimes I lean a little off reality in effort for adding color to drab models and I really like variety of colors so here are my painted samples of all my crate sets. steve LINK LINK LINK LINK LINK
