Introduction:

Live Resin recently offered Polaris MV850 ATV in 1/35 scale. The company also released a bunch of accessories, upgrades and figures for the vehicle, many of which have been reviewed on Armorama (link). This review covers: US Military ATV quadrobike upgrade set - Side bags with M4 carbine (LRE-35324).

Review:

The set is packed in a zip-lock bag safely secured between cardboard backings. CAD box art images show the contents of the set and the set in use on Polaris MV850 ATV.

The set includes 4 pieces organized on two identical carrier blocks. The pieces are delivered in grey resin and, as with all Live Resin sets I reviewed so far, the cast is absolutely perfect… no air bubbles, no seam lines or any similar casting defects. The details are sharp and nicely defined in scale.

The set depicts ATV fender bag. The bag ismade up of a 600D UV Coated Poly with a Water-Resistant backer, perfect for storing the standard MV850 tools or other items requiring protection from the elements. As the name suggests, the bag attaches to vehicle fender. As far as my references show, the bags supplied in the set are realistically depicted. One of the bags doesn’t indicate its load, while the other implies a stored M4 carbine. I must admit I haven’t seen a weapon tucked into the fender bag, but then again I don’t have many photos of the ATV showing the bag and its contents.

Altogether, as each MV850 ATV comes standard with a fender bag, I feel this set is a very welcomed addition to the 1/35 scale ATV kit produced under Live Resin label.

Conclusion:

US Military ATV quadrobike upgrade set - Side bags with M4 carbine (LRE-35324) from Live Resin is a simple, yet very useful 1/35 scale ATV accessory set. It includes 4 fender bags in 2 slightly different options. The pieces are perfectly cast in resin and should prove very easy to install on the vehicle.


EDIT: I have Live Resin ATV kit in the works. Once the build is complete, I plan to include photos of the bags installed on the vehicle to this review.

You wonder how did this addiction start? I was a kid when my dad broght home a 1/72 Concord airplane; we built it together as well as couple of other airplanes after that. This phase was just pure fun: glue, paint, decals in no particular order... everything was finished in a day or two. Then I disc...
