Hauler, 1/72 scale
Reviewed by Graham Carter
Hauler produce a vast range of superb quality resin and PE kits and conversion sets over a variety of military and non-military genres. As well as this set they do office furniture, safes, telephone boxes and even supermarket trolleys in 1/72 as well as an equally vast range in 1/35.
Bedroom furniture - Who would have thought it!! Here we have a set of bedroom pieces that could be useful in a diorama from a period about 1930s to 1950s or so.
The set consists of a double bed with pillows and tidy covers cast in place with separate head and foot boards, a cupboard with four shelves and changing space and separate doors with either panes or mirrors, two side tables and three-piece table lamps.
All parts are cleanly cast with no bubbles visible and most parts have only fine webs joining them to their blocks. The exceptions are the cupboard and bed base which will require a lot of careful sanding to get them to a usable state Take care with this process as resin dust is hazardous to our lungs.
The single A5 instruction page has an illustration of the set with rudimentary location diagrams. The modeller is left with their own choice of colours, although a timber finish looks the most logical, and is illustrated thus on their web-site.
Certainly something different and a set that could be very useful to the inventive modeller.
Thanks to Hauler for the sample.
