Hauler has provided another addition to the great Diorama releases. This is a 1/48 Scale U.S. Safe from Pre -WWII period.
- 13 resin parts
- Photo Etch Sheet
- Small decal sheet
- Instruction Sheet
The detail quality is great; The parts are very delicate parts that need careful removal from the resign bases. I did manage to lose the small resin safe handle. So I had to make one myself
The Assembly is quick and easy.
Please be careful with the Photo etch interior parts as they need to be assembled as tightly as possible to slide into the safe opening.
Next is the painting then adding the decals. The Decals did tend to roll up and were hard to place due to this. The addition of the gold bars were a nice touch.

Brengun, based in the Czech Republic, is known for producing a range of photo-etched and resin accessories for airplane models. They also produce a small number of 1/72nd and 1/144th model sets in both plastic and resin. One of their resin kits is the T-62 Main Battle Tank in 1/144 scale.
The T-62 entered service with Soviet Union in 1961, and remained in service with the former Soviet Union until the early 2000s. Originally, designed as an upgrade to the T-55 series of tanks, the T-62 was the first tank armed with a smoothbore gun and replaced the T-55 as the standard tank of the Soviet army. While the T-62 is no longer in service with the Russian army, it is still commonly seen on today's modern battlefields in Syria and Yemen.

Each article features historical photographs along with color pics of museum displays or renovated AFVs from World War I to the current day. Each volume will feature eight focused articles and a modelling gallery, showcasing some of the finest models that have been seen in Miltary Modelcraft International over the last decade. Each article will also include specially commissioned color profiles in conjunction with Acrylicos Vallejo model paints.

This illustrated photo album includes over 120 B&W pictures of the Kaiserliche und Konigliche Eisenbahn-Bau Kompanie unit (German Imperial Railway Construction Company) which operated during early stages of WW1 in the Western Galicia, now southern Poland. The railways are mostly narrow gauge.
The book uses black & white photographs to illustrate various construction or repair projects by the K.U.K in Western Galicia during the early WWI years between 1914-15. Captions are provided with each of the photos to describe the location and content of the photo. The photos are clear, and many show damaged bridges being built or repaired with descriptions of various construction methods and materials. A brief, but detailed outline of military operations provides context for the projects.
The railway projects are organized in these towns or areas:

Eduard Models has released a PE set to spruce up your Revell Fw-190A-8.
Typical of the Zoom line, this set consists of one fret, focused on the instrument panel and a few other cockpit details.
The instrument panel fret is pre-painted and would look very good with an open canopy. It will certainly enhance the looks of your Fw-190. The fret also includes all kind of switches, levers, oxygen regulator and rudder pedals.
Please note that this set does not include seatbelts. You can get them on the sets 33227 and 33179 (steel version, which are very nice to work with).
Given the small size of some of the parts, I will recommend this kit to modelers of all levels except the most novice. Highly recommended.
I would like to thank Eduard Models and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
