    conclusion

    To be honest, I can say MecModels printing quality is quite better when compared to some other products I lately used. I found various boxes sheet very handy because it includes many different brands and colorful boxes that will fit together to bring realism to dioramas.
    Various posters and signs sheets are also very useful as they include almost everything needed on a Vietnam dio ; road signs, warning signs, maps, posters, centerfolds and magazines of the period. I especially liked the company added some brillant details to the sheets like playcards, chess and monopoly boards and NBA poster.

    Special thanks to Mark for the samples.
