The first box for the trappers was this one, the BUM – 2053 – Canadian Trappers, Summer.

You get several items in this box, as follows.

5 Summer trappers figures. + 1 Dog.
6 Indians figures.
1 Vivac
1 Bridge
1 Barbecue
1 Chart


The Indian figures have a good sculpture level, but unfortunately they are not so well cast, there are some flash around the mold line, so they will need many work to clean them, also they aren’t cast in the same material than trappers, and this one is not so easy to work with knife. This six figures have been seen in many of the “The Last of the Mohican’s” series.


The Vivac have been seen in the 2054 Review, as this box is bigger this time it not comes cut.


The bridge is a basic resin piece, not the best in the BUM range, but it can be useful for gaming.



The best in the box are the Trappers figures, no flash, no plastic excess, no mould lines. They are very nice figures.



The Chart is also a nice piece, it comes in three parts, the chart plus the wheels. All is well cast, the wooden pattern is present in both sides of the chart.


Our two preferred figures in the box.


The barbecue, although is a nice piece, came broke in our box. It can be repaired, but it will take some time to you.



Material used for the figures is quite soft, this would be and odd for some modelers, who prefer hard plastics, but this material took good glue and can be worked with knife in a very easy way.

The two six Indians can be found in other boxes of the “Last of the Mohicans” series, the vivac also can be fount in the other Trappers box, but the rest of the box is exclusive.

Many Thanks to Francisco German (BUM) who has sent us this box for review.
