Braziers

by: Alan McNeilly [ ALANL ]

Introduction

I bought these items unseen from SB Models. They are shown under Stewart’s SB Scotia range and I thought I’d check them out.

The set

The set comes in a small zip bag with the product details displayed on a small label. It consists of 4 braziers in the form of altered fuel drums

The set is cast in a light cream coloured resin and was free from any damage with only the small base plug to remove.

The braziers take the form of adapted fuel drums filled with embers and are typical of this sort of ad-hoc brazier.

Conclusion

A very handy and cost effective set of braziers. I’d liked to have seen a more varied selection but these will be very handy Diorama or Vignette items and should be useable by any nation across a wide time frame.

I would not have thought to do these, what a delightful idea for an Eastern Front diorama!
