Matho Models from Belgium produces an interesting range of products that will enhance your next diorama or vignette project. They offer a nice range of items in resin, photo-etch, plaster, etc., and in a variety of scales. They're a relatively new business so the product line is still growing. Check out their web page or eBay store.
In this release, Matho Models has produced a pair of wood pallets which will need some minor assembly and some paint and weathering to fit in your scene. This set is molded in gray resin and presented as four parts per pallet (eight parts total per set). When I saw these, I was surprised that I haven't seen wooden pallets offered in other product lines before this. Talk about an overlooked subject!
The casting is sharp and only requires the mold stub removed from each part as well as the three lower rails mounted under the upper platform using cyano adhesive. What's nice about this set is that you can use these in a variety of time frames and settings. Give some a try!
My sincere thanks to Matho Models for this review sample!
