Following on from a look at Model Cellar Productions
MC35109 zig-zag sandbag sections, (Reviewed here
), here is a quick look at two interlocking straight sandbag sections (MC35106).
The set comes packed in a sturdy box, with the pieces protected by styrofoam bits. On the top of the box is a coloured pictures of the contents and on the side the manufacturers details.
This is a simple set of two interlocking straight sandbag sections. The sections are cast in a cream coloured resin. Detail on the front and top of the bags looks good. The back is smooth to build into any trench type diorama that you may have in mind.
To accompany the pieces is a small paper set of instructions with hints and tips as to how to build the sections into your scene.
Joined end to end these cover a frontage of about 7 ½ to 8 inches being about 1 ½ inches in height.
I know many will prefer to build their own sandbags but for those with less time than they would like for the hobby these offer a quick and easy way to construct a wall of sandbags within a trench system.
The products are designed to interact with both the zig-zag, outside and inside sandbag sections also produced by Model Cellar. The sections interlock with these sections well, picture 6 shows the straight connected to an outside corner section (MC35107).
A handy aftermarket product that could be used across many time periods. I would have liked to have see a small end block for each section should you not wish to extend them.
