SB Models have within their SB Scotia range some handy diorama accessories. This is a look at one such product; Sandbag Sections No 1.
The set comes packed in a zip plastic bag with the product details and number on a small paper tab. My set is cast in both a cream coloured and light grey coloured resin. The set consists of 2 sandbag sections that are set at right angles. The larger cream coloured section measures 60 mm x 30mm (approx) and consists of a 5 high stack of sandbags and a wooden box. Detail on both sides of the stack looks good and the bags are somewhat random and natural looking.
The second section measures 44mm x 40mm (approx) and consists of a 7 high stack of bags built on two different sizes wooden boxes. Again the detail is very nicely done.
Each stack is set on a small base which you could trim or sink into your setting, or leave as is.
A very handy little stack of sandbags and boxes which should be useful to both diorama and vignette builders alike. The bags are stacked in a realistic manner and the addition of the wooden boxes in the base gives a nice variation.
You could make your own set if you have the time and patience but alternatively for those who donít have the time this set offers a quick and easy solution for a small corner section.
