Hauler has provided an interesting item that can be put to good use in any number of 1/72nd scale dioramas, as well as an item that enhances the display of a non-diorama model. That item is a set of two umbrellas. Imagine a ground crewman or pilot, sitting atop the wing of an aircraft in North Africa. An umbrella would provide some much-appreciated shade. How about an infantryman or member of a tank crew, taking a break and preparing a meal in North Africa? And, of course, if our fellow is in Europe, then the umbrella could provide some protection from rain. And, of course, umbrellas know no nationality, so if based in England, the umbrella would certainly be useful during rainy weather.

The umbrella canopies provided by Hauler are vacuum formed with excellent detail when viewed from above. Each canopy measures 5/8 inch in diameter. Hauler provides a P.E. runner with an umbrella handle and a metal frame for each of two umbrella coverings. The P.E. runner supplies a third metal frame, to be used as a spare in case of damage to one of the other two, or to be rigged as a destroyed umbrella with the application of tissue representing the ripped and torn umbrella covering.

There's simply nothing "difficult" about assembling these umbrellas and then using them in a wide variety of settings.

This product is highly recommended due to the number of ways it can be used in a diorama or used to enhance a single model subject. The price is reasonable, and the product is quite easy to assemble. Thanks to Hauler for supplying this product for review by IPMS.
