Burnt-out Modern Car
By: MIG Productions
Item no: MP35-263 Price: €32.50
MIG Productions’ splendid car wreck makes a welcome return. It comprises 17 crisply cast resin components and two lengths of wire, plus a four-piece jig to create the seat frames. The latter is ingenious, with a slotted guide to help straighten the coiled copper wire, and rotary toothed wheels to fashion the springs, while the frames are shaped around a rectangular former.
While the engine interior is suitably detailed, the highlight is the vehicle’s exterior, which features convincing heat-damaged surfaces (notably the rippled roof section), plus myriad dents, bullet holes and general scarring. This would be ideal for a scrapyard or bombed-out scene and while resin may not be to everyone’s liking, it does mean the parts count is reduced without compromising on detail.
