First Look

Here's another modern detail for your diorama or vignette - air conditioners. If you're modeling a scene in a warm area and with an urban background, one common sight that you don't see with many Middle East building is an air conditioner. Many homes have been updated with such comforts and this is one detail you don't see often in dioramas.

Air Conditioners

This nice set from Plus Model provides three different air conditioner packs with the rear of the units hollow-cast in resin with separately cast condensors to go inside. The set also provides mounting brackets/supports in resin, and nice grills and fans in photo-etch. The set even provides placards and safety markings that would appear on the units that you'd see on the outside of the home.

Grab one or more of these interesting sets to add that missing dimension in your diorama or vignette!

My sincere thanks to Plus Model for this review sample!
