    https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/jon-smith-modellbau-new-accessories.149163/

    We all know of JSM so hearing of new releases is particularly welcome , using 3D sculpting they are well known for the accessories that we see in dioram's and on single figures as well adding more to the pieces

    All the above are 1/35th scale

    To compare these are 54mm

    ZWednesday 029.jpg ZWednesday 027.jpg ZWednesday 028.jpg

    All are really nice to look at and appreciate the skill in both sculpting and casting quality = VERY HIGH QUALITY

    Now I mentioned Rats earlier....

    ZWednesday 030.jpg ZWednesday 031.jpg ZWednesday 032.jpg


    I had a couple of business cards sent as well these are the rats from them ........same skill in sculpting and casting applies and a must for that scene in WW1 or even a civilian with maybe children playing in ruins with them

    Have a look at this as well for further items available

    https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/ww1-accessories-from-jon-smith-modellbau.81230/

    ....more fine resin available

    Final thoughts

    Excellent additions to a wide series of items , well cast , excellent presentaion



    Highly recommended for all

    I love Jon’s stuff. I have the full 120mm trench system and figures sat waiting to be done. Beautiful pieces and he’s a pleasure to deal with

    An excellent new range, to be sure. What we now need is a terrier to deal with those rats!

    Thanks for all comments regarding the recent JSM reviews from Nap. The idea of a rat-catcher has already been suggested a few times and a small dog (the Germans favoured Jack Russells) would be a good challenge for a future project.
