Brengun is another Czech brand, and is linked to the Hauler brand label. I’ve been vaguely aware of the brand name, but this is the first product I have seen. The name Brengun Models is singularly appropriate as they are based in Brno where the superb Bren light machine gun originated from. They offer a number of kits, detail sets, accessories and conversions in 1/144, 1/72 and 1/48 scales. Some are very useful additions for existing kits and others are unusual full kits in themselves such as a Freya radar station. 1/144 seems to be their most popular scale in terms release numbers at this stage.
I grouped the sets reviewed here on the basis that they are all essentially diorama accessories. Each set comes in a cellophane bag stapled to a card header, and with the exception of the road barriers, all come with well printed and helpful instructions.
The items are as follows:
1/72 Workshop Ladders (72005). Generic in nature, but of a generally modern style, these are ideal for hangar scene.
1/72 Modern concrete road barriers (72006). Remove the casting blocks and you have just the thing to stage a road-block & checkpoint diorama.
1/72 Cart with Extinguisher (72012). Nicely done, probably 1920-40’s style.
1/72 Table & Chairs (72013). Just the thing for dispersal site diorama from either side of the channel.
1/144 Antitank Barrier (144023). Set of three hedgehog-style steel barriers. I assume these are aimed mainly at the 1/144 war-gamers.
1/144 Oxy-acetylene Cart (144024). Nicely done, and will compliment any small workshop scene. Two carts per pack.
1/144 Cart with Extinguisher (144025). As for the 1/72 set, but two carts per pack.
1/144 Table & Chairs (144028). As for the 1/72 set, but a lot fiddlier to assemble!
Where applicable the resin parts are very cleanly cast and appear faultless, and the PE is also to a very high standard. The PE will present some really delicate challenges, especially in the case of the 1/144 chairs and tables.
These are very well produced diorama accessories, whose usefulness is only limited by a modeller’s imagination.
Thanks to Brengun Models for the review sample.
