introduction
JTG Products is a new model maker focusing on HO scale WWII-era models. This review is a casting from the set Anti-Aircraft Ammunition Shells, sold as a set of four.

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, but not limited to
    Barbed wire obstacle models of wood and metal
    Boxes
    Bunkers
    Detail parts and sets in various media
    Diorama scenes
    Freight and containers
    Loading ramps
    Sand bags
    Stacks of ammunition
    Weapons emplacements

JTG also combines, customizes, paints and decals commercial HO railway rolling stock and military personnel and equipment for sale. More than German subjects are available and while there are 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 found via the website JTG1942 and eBay.

While JTG Products is focused on military modeling, these many of his products are perfect for civilian scenes, too.

Anti-Aircraft Ammunition Shells
This ceramic casting represents a pile of anti-aircraft ammunition shells. They come pre-painted and weathered with a wash.

In contrast to other JTG Products casting I have examined, this casting lacks sharp defined detail. I really could not tell what they are meant to be if I did not find the product listing.

Clever painting could turn this casting into some indistinct cargo pile. Very detailed painting might be able to make it look like shells.

Conclusion
Anti-Aircraft Ammunition Shells does not rise to the quality of other JTG Products that I have seen. It lacks defined detail. Creative modelers may be able to use these for creative cargoes.

We thank JTG Products for sending this casting in for review. Please tell them you saw this here - on RailRoad Modeling.
SUMMARY
Highs: Creative modelers may be able to use these for creative cargoes.

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...
