Value Gear Details:
For about 2 years now I have been working on a range stowage items. So far I have made sets of Universal/Generic Tent tolls and crates for 1/72 1/48 1/35 scales, and have some Army and War specific sets in 1/35 scale and will soon have some in 1/72 as well.
Stowage items that should work on most vehicles from a covered wagon to a WWII sherman tank to an modern Humvee... "Any Army Any Era" is what I am trying to create. Universal/Generic items do not include any weapons or details to identify them to a specific army or time period. They may not work on every model but with so much variety you should be able to find a piece to fit in whatever space on whatever kit you are working on.
Since the pieces are so versitile, They can be good for Gaming as well as model building, I have seen pictures of Value gear on - forge world and games workshop tanks, WWI dioramas, WWII dioramas, Modern Dioramas, Post apoctolyptic zombie fighting cars, sci fi dioramas and look forward to what people will send me next.
Value Gears Goal:
My Goal is to give your spares box and models more variety of stowage combinations. Tired of looking in your spares box and finding 3 or 4 of the exact same tarp roll? Me too, that is why I started Value Gear Details!!!
Every set of Value Gear contains unique rolls, bundles, and packs only available in that set, not any duplicates from other sets. Giving the most variety and choices for your builds.
Casting and Appearence:
These sets are unpainted resin cast pieces for use on model kits.
All parts are now cast in medium gray resin. It really shows the details and helps you to see the part better for modifying or filling the occasional air bubble. Resin parts should be cleaned and primed before painting.
Value Gear stowage sets take less cleanup than alot of other after market resin sets. No giant pour plugs to cut off, a little scraping with X-acto and a light sanding and it is ready to glue to your kit or diorama. We do not use mold release. A little wash with soapy water is recomended for best results.
Good Tip For Tents and Tarps: Bending Resin:
drop a few of the tent and tarp rolls into a coffee cup and pour in some boiling water, after 60 seconds or so, fish a piece out with some tweezers and the parts will easily bend to conform to a fender or turret curve. It's a great way to customize your bits for your vehicle. Thicker or larger resin pieces may take a little more time, so practice a bit. This trick works with most types of resin.
after cleaning and bending, I like to prime (Testors, Games Workshop, Army Painter or any other handy spray primer) then paint with (Testors, Tamiya, and Vallejo acrylic paints) and then wash (Games Workshop Washes, or washes made from Artist Oil Paints).
