Recently released from Resicast are a set of Damaged Wooden Boxes for use in vehicles and dioramas, set No 35.2363.
The set comes packed in the normal Resicast format for small items, the parts in 2 separate zip plastic bags and the set contained within a further zip bag. Included is a paper insert showing the product number, picture of the items and manufacturers details.
The boxes are cast in a light grey resin. The detail looks good.
The set consists of 10 damaged wooden boxes, two of each kind; a total of 5 types. The boxes represent fallen and burst or split boxes with the contents spilling out onto the ground, particularly useful for crashed vehicles or general diorama settings, or where a box has been dropped..
The spilled contents includes, cans and boxes/tins, so use you imagination as to what you want these to represent. The set follows on from Kit No 53.2362 which has a range of wooden boxes.
These should make a nice addition to any diorama you’re building and are a fun but useful item. Use your imagination and you will have an item to add a little more interest and reality to whatever you are building. The detail looks realistic and should make for a piece of fun painting. Useful from the late 1800s onwards.
