Introduction

Following on from a look at Model Cellar Productions MC35109, MC35108 and MC35106, here is a look at a 4th and final item from the sandbag range, this time an interlocking Outside Corner.

MC35109 Zig-Zag Sandbags

The Piece

The set comes packed in a sturdy box, with the piece protected by styrofoam bits. On the top of the box is a coloured picture of the contents and on the side the manufacturers details.

This is a simple set of one interlocking outside corner. The section is 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 piece is a small paper set of instructions with hints and tips as to how to build the sections into your scene.

The piece is designed to provide an outside corner to match the previous sections reviewed here on site.

Conclusion

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 one part of a wall of sandbags within a trench system.

The product is designed to interact with both the zig-zag, straight and inside sandbag sections also produced by Model Cellar. The section interlocks with these parts well.

A handy aftermarket product that could be used across many time periods. I would have liked to have seem a small end block for the section should you not wish to extend it.

Iíve included some additional pictures of all 4 interlocking sandbag sections reviewed here on site.

SUMMARY

Lows: I would have liked to have seen two small end sections included should you not wish to extend the item.

Greying slightly, but young at heart. I've been teaching adults off and on for most of my life. Left the services in 85 and first started modelling in about 87 for a few years. Then I had a long spell when I didn't build anything (too busy) and really just got started again during the summer of ...
