Plus Model has expanded their Easy Line of products with a new set of 20 resin grenades as employed by the German army in WWII.
The grenades come molded in two sets of 10 along a single resin block. The attachment point is fairly small. Detail is quite nice, with the end cap and neck of the grenade where the stick handle inserts clearly defined. As a bonus, decals are included for the grenade head. The decals are clearly printed and legible (under magnification). No paint guide is provided so prior knowledge of the subject or some online searching is needed. Photos at Plus Models site show them with dark grey metallic surfaces. Online photos show black, green, field gray and dark gray. I painted one set with very dark grey (or light black) paint and added a few decals to show detail for the review.
Plus Models has this set listed at $4.60 US. It is a simple, inexpensive accessory for a vehicle or diorama setting, or to replace any styrene kit part.
Highs: Good detail and a good price.Lows: No paint guide.Verdict: This is a simple and inexpensive accessory.
