Royal Model offers a big selection of 1/35 scale model accessories in their catalogue, all very useful for dioramas and vignettes. This review covers a set of electrical boxes, conduit fittings and connectors in different sizes, used both in household and industrial settings: Electrical Boxes (813).
The set is packed in a hard cardboard box. The front of the box features a composite image featuring contents of the set and painted parts of the set used in a vignette. Quite a good way to promote the product, as one can see not just everything the set includes, but also what talented hands can do with the set.
The resin pieces are safely secured in a sealed plastic bag. Opening the bag reveals 6 long carrier blocks holding 80 resin pieces. These are actually 3 different blocks, each supplied in two slightly different sizes. The cast is perfect, with all the details nicely reproduced. Some of the pieces are very delicate and extra care is advised when removing them from the carrier blocks. Cleaning the pieces could also prove as a test of patience, as these tiny parts would not tolerate manhandling.
The set also includes two spools of wire in different diameters. These should come in handy as conduits and cables for electrical wiring.
Electrical boxes (813) from Royal Model delivers 1/35 scale resin electrical boxes in several variants and dimensions. Junction boxes, fuse boxes, connectors and conduit fittings, as well as electrical wiringÖ itís all there just waiting to be installed to a factory wall or many other urban diorama settings.
