introduction
JTG Products is a new model maker focusing on HO scale WWII-era models. This review is a casting from the set Detailed Weathered 5 Ammunition Freight Boxes.

JTG Products
JTG Products focuses on the modeling of the German Railroad of the WWII Era. Modeling the World War II Eastern Front since 1984, and recently building models for others, in May 2013 an enjoyable full time hobby became JTG Products. JTG Products makes lineside structures such as loading ramps, diorama scenes, detail parts and sets in various media, as well as combining and customizing commercial HO railway rolling stock and military subjects for sale. More than German subjects are available and while too many to list here, an example is his set Roco Minitanks Patton's 3rd Army 24 Soldiers 2 Sherman Tanks Custom, including everything in the title, painted and ready to populate your layout! The models and services can be obtained via the website JTG1942 and eBay.

While JTG Products is focused on military modeling, these loads are perfect for civilian scenes, too.

Ammunition Freight Box
Five separate castings are available in the set, cast in a ceramic. These are generic wooden crates. The casting process yielded good relief. Being ceramic it has weight; this can make it less likely to be knocked off or slide off where you put it.

JTG also adds the decal. It seems to have been set over an non-glossy surface and thus has carrier film is shiny. Modelers can easily fix this by a number of techniques.

It is cast sharp with fine detail and no casting flash, air pockets, or mold lines.

Conclusion
This set is a good way to supply your layout scenes with a group of five Ammunition Freight Boxes. Recommended.

We thank JTG Products for sending this casting in for review. Please tell them you saw this here - on RailRoad Modeling.

About Frederick Boucher (JPTRR)
FROM: TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
