Stone Wall
Resin Stone Wall

by: Carlos Martin [ VARANUSK ]


Originally published on:
Armorama

Apart from publishing excellent resources like the Panzer Aces magazine or the Landscapes of War book series for dioramas, Accion Press has also a line of diorama accesories called Landscapes in Detail

The wall is a single acrylic resin part, representing a wall made of stones, in a light cream colour.

The size is 4,5cm long, 3cm high and 1cm thick. Accion Press also offers a longer one of 14,5cm. It has a casting block at the base that does not need to be removed, as it can be used to attach the wall to the ground. If needed, it is thick enough to allow to be drilled in order to insert a couple of wires and secure it even more to the base of the scene.

The design is excellent, showing a wide range of sizes of stones building the wall in a random way. There is no repeating pattern and both sides are different. The texture of the stones is also varied, some being rougher than others.

The casting is flawless, with no bubbles at all and great definition.

In summary, a quality product that will enhance the look of a scene with just some painting.
SUMMARY
Highs: Wall is ready to use with realistic looking of stones.
Lows: None noticed
Verdict: An interesting addition for dioramas, a nice wall that just need paint.

FROM: SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, SPAIN / ESPAñA

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...

As they say, "Short and sweet"! Nice but could be a little longer, or made in sections that will interlock for a longer wall.

I had the same comment - needed to also offer a longer section - now you're talking.
