Plastic Water Bottles
Plastic Water Bottles

by: Carlos Martin [ VARANUSK ]

One of the few universal supplies common to any Army is water, which can be also obtained locally by soldiers and crew. It is also needed several times a day to keep you alive, so it is easy to think that a bottle of water can be placed on any vehicle or scene.
This small set from Macone has plastic water bottles in different sizes and colors. There are three sizes, 0.5l, 1,5l and bigger ones of 5l.
All of them are in transparent and blue. There 3 bottles of 5l, six of 1,5l and six of 0,5l for each colour.
The bottles are nicely done, with fine details like the thin ribs on real bottles perfectly reproduced.
The quality of the cast is excellent, as all Macone products I have seen: no warping, no bubbles, no imperfections.
The bottles are easily separated from the casting block with a sharp blade.
This set includes decals for the labels, from three brands. But there is only one label per bottle, which somehow limits your choices if you want to show a number of equal bottles: four for the 1,5l and 05,l and two for the 5l ones.

In short, this is a nice small set that can be useful for almost any modern vehicle, military or civil, big or small, adding a different touch of human presence.
SUMMARY
Highs: Excellent casting. Easy removal
Lows: None noticed
Verdict: A nice resin set that can be used on modern vehicles or scenes.

My main interest is German vehicles and guns, and I like spending time researching the vehicle and the options for the camo once I have chosen a subject. Sometimes I go for specific and rare vehicles, of which only two or three photos are known so it takes me a lot of time to figure how everything w...

The brand name is "Evian", not "Evien". Strange, since the other two are correctly spelled.

Maybe Evian threatened to sue them?

Maybe. But still, this could be "useful" information for the pixel counters...
