Introduction:

Live Resin introduced modular concept in military figure production, offering figure kits with all the equipment pieces cast separately. This way the modeler can customize the figure by attaching various pouches and backpacks to the figure, thus obtaining the desired military rig setup.

Review:

In order to maximize the flexibility of their concept, the company released several different sets of modern individual equipment. This review covers one of the latest equipment sets from Live Resin: Different Magazine/Utility Pouches Set (LRE 35332).

The set is packed in a zip-lock bag secured between cardboard backings, with CAD box art showing the contents of the kit. The set contains 13 pieces cast in grey resin. The resin looks really good and upon closer inspection I found no imperfections in the cast, with the details sharp and nicely defined. The pouches and small equipment pieces are delivered on three carrier blocks: LRE-35332A offers various utility pouches, while LRE-35332B and LRE-35332C provide different ammo magazine pouches, chest pouch and backpack… altogether a nice collection of individual equipment pieces.

Along with other equipment sets already released from the company, these pouches and backpacks can be used as an accessory on Live Resin’s own line of figures, but also as modular equipment on various other 1/35 scale figures.

Conclusion:

Different Magazine/Utility Pouches Set (LRE 35332) from Live Resin offers a selection of 13 individual equipment pieces in 1/35 scale. Nicely cast in resin with loads of details, these pieces can be used to customize various 1/35 scale figures.
SUMMARY
Highs: Perfectly cast in resin and offering a nice variety of different modern equipment pieces, these pouches can be used to customize 1/35 scale figures.
Lows: None.
Verdict: Highly recommended.

You wonder how did this addiction start? I was a kid when my dad broght home a 1/72 Concord airplane; we built it together as well as couple of other airplanes after that. This phase was just pure fun: glue, paint, decals in no particular order... everything was finished in a day or two. Then I disc...

This stuff is simply beyond belief where detail is concerned! You'd think that you were looking at photos and not resin scale replicas! The Magpul M4 pouch is incredible! They should put out WW2 stuff for those of us thematically stuck firmly in the past where modeling is concerned. MP and Stg mag pouches would be great additions for us!

These are incredible! Think about this...now you can arm practically ANY 1/35 figure with ammo, be it civilian, military, male or female, government or private, Safari Ranger, police, S.W.A.T., Sci-Fi, Post-Apocalyptic, sentry, Dystopian, or Rebel. Companies already make plenty of 1/35 weapons, but few make good 1/35 ammo pouches. Now here they are. And best of all, the magazines fit the pouches and the magazines on the guns...not too skinny and not too fat...these are in scale! Kudos Live-Resin! Thumbs way up!
