All in Resine specializes in producing accessory sets for dioramas and vignettes in form of 3D printed pieces. The company offers several slightly different valves in 1/35 scale, perfectly suited for various industrial setting dioramas. This review covers one of these kits: Ball Check Valve (50mm with Pipe Line (AC5016).
The kit is packed in a zip-lock bag with a CAD box art image showing the particular type of valve included in this set. The set consists of a single 3D printed piece, nicely delivered in scale. Although most of the All in Resine offerings I reviewed so far featured only miniscule printing lines which required no additional cleanup, I feel this set should be primed and sanded to get the optimal surface finish. This might involve some extra work, but it is well worth it.
The set depicts a typical ball check valve… small, simple and cheap. These valves are commonly used in liquid pump dispenser spigots, spray devices, air pumps, etc. so using this 1/35 scale set in different factory settings is a viable option.
Ball Check Valve (50mm with Pipe Line (AC5016) is a very useful accessory piece which could be used in various 1/35 scale dioramas. However, some additional cleanup of the piece is needed.
Highs: A single 3D piece which should be a very welcomed addition to many factory dioramas.Lows: Some printing lines that need to be taken care of.Verdict: Highly recommended.

This phase was just pure fun: glue, paint, decals in no particular order... everything was finished in a day or two. Then I disc...
