Hauler produces photo-etched and resin upgrade sets for armored fighting vehicles (AFVs), airplanes, cars, railway vehicles, and dioramas. They also produce a few resin kits. Their products are in most of the common scale sizes, 1/72, 1/48, and 1/35, but they also produce a number of other items in common railroad hobbyist scales.

This diorama accessory is a US Army Field Safe. The safe itself is a resin box, with 3 additional pieces of resin representing the combination dial, door handle, and the actual door with "US" stamped on the front. There is a small photoetch sheet, which contains six pieces of photo-etch that will make up the inside shelves for the safe. A simple instruction sheet is included too.

Construction goes together very easily. The shelves are assembled, then fitted inside the actual safe. The 2 small pieces of resin representing the combination dial and door handle attach to the indentations on the front of the door, and the door attaches neatly to the actual safe body. There wasn't much clean up needed and everything went together in a matter of minutes to provide a very reasonable example of a safe.

Once completed, this would make a nice addition to a small diorama, or as a piece of furniture for a doll house. This is a relatively easy and inexpensive way to add an interesting piece of furniture not normally seen in military dioramas. My thanks to Hauler, and IPMS/USA for providing the review sample.
