Thank you Russ, this is another company that I have not heard of before your review. Looks like they have some interesting items for very reasonable prices. Only available through Lucky Model at this time, but you can't beat free shipping

Nice review Russ,
My envelope of them arrived yesterday.
They look good, and I'm not too worried about not being able to read every letter in the smaller printing on ithe boxes. Plus the price is right, and I'll probably be ordering a few more.
( you beat me to the review! )

James, I'm looking at a few more items from them. For the diorama impaired like me, it's a perfect solution.

Dave, thanks for the comments. I just sent in a review of the medical boxes. they do have two other sets of rations boxes . . .

I ordered both Combat Rations 2 and Combat Rations 3. Overall, they are in accordance with the review.

However, Combat Rations 3 are printed up-side down in that after you assemble them and place it such that "Meals Ready to Eat" is on top, the writing on the sides will be up-side down. Not necessarily a huge deal, but something to be aware of.
