Plus Model out of Czechoslovakia continues to add to its list of quality aftermarket and modeling supply products; this time with a package of French infantry rucksack items – perfect for a diorama, or even amongst a pile of detritus found in the back of an armored vehicle.
The package contains a variety of items, but what they are specifically is not called out. These include:
After spraying everything with a primer coat of (rattlecan) Krylon Flat Black Lacquer Paint/Primer, I finished all items using Vallejo paints, including:
Plus Models’ French Rucksack is an interesting addition to the variety of after-market diorama accessories available from this productive company out of Czechoslovakia. The detail on the various items is up to their normal excellent standard, and the items themselves are sturdy and well crafted.
My only wish is the same that I want from every resin manufacturer: find a way to removing the parts from the backing blocks easier.
I recommend this Plus Model product for any modeler who wants to add a little realism to their work with quality after-market products. The items included are unusual, and with a little work, will look great.
I would like to thank the Plus Model for providing this product for review, and to IPMS USA for giving me the opportunity to review it.
