In-Box Review
Potato and Vegetable Sacks
  • move

by: Sven Harjacek [ SHARJACEK ]


Reality in Scale pack these small resin items in clear acetate blister style containers, they are very robust and secure the product from any damage. This set contains a total of 12 pieces (of which 11 are sacks and one is a basket) and 13 color decals. I must mention that each sack is unique which is great for variation if you want to use more of them on the same diorama. The resin parts are cast in tan and grey resin which seems to be of very good quality. There are no air bubbles or casting defects as per Reality in Scale standard. Only one of the pieces in my set had a casting block and the rest just needed minor sanding at the bottom. Potato sacks are usually made of jute, a very fine fiber. I expected it to be big but it's just spot on, I believe this detail cannot be achieved with injection moulded plastic. The attached pictures are very zoomed in so you can see the detail. As for the decals; you get 4 types as you can see in the images, my only complaint on this set would go to the graininess of the decals.


In my opinion this set is very useful for anyone trying to depict a urban scene, be it Europe from WWII or Africa/Middle East from the more recent conflicts. Reality in scale managed to confirm their status as one of the greatest companies for diorama additions of this sort.

My thanks to Reality in Scale for providing this review sample
Highs: The general level of detail and perfectly cast resin with the addition of all parts being different for variation.
Lows: Graininess of decals.
Verdict: Great addition for anyone trying to depict an urban diorama scene.

Reality in Scale are the makers of a premium quality product and this set compliments nicely their other products. I look forward to purchasing this set, and may even break a rule of mine not to fiddle with "completed" dioramas by adding these items. Well done RIS. Keep em coming! Adamski

I agree with Adam,this is a great set. My only problem with Reality in Scale stuff is it's hard to find it in stock anywhere. J
