InBox Review – BUM – 2053 – Canadian Trappers, Summer.

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.

IMG_0285

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.

Inbox Review – BUM – 2054 – Canadian Trappers, Winter.

Together with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police BUM released two boxes for trappers. Here we go with the second of them, the BUM – 2054 – Canadian Trappers, Winter.

In this box you get:
6 Winter trappers figures.
1 Dogsled + 2 dogs.
1 Vivac (Our copy came broke, although usable)

IMG_0250

The vicac is a basic resin piece, but usable and well cast. The two mast came cut at the base height to avoid damage during transport.

IMG_0265

The trappers are the big value of this box, figures are well cast, no sign of flash or mould lines neither plastic excess.

This time, the dogsled came without driver and only with 2 dogs.

IMG_0270

The figure below is specially beautiful for our taste.

IMG_0273

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 dogs and the vivac can be found in other boxes of the series, but the rest of the box is exclusive.

Inbox Review – BUM – 2050 – Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Parade and Yukon uniforms.

Our second review is for the BUM – 2050 – Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Parade and Yukon uniforms.

This is the first box of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Box, you will find the following inside:

3 Figures (Two in parade uniform)
7 Dogs (six are for the gosled)
1 Dogsled
1 Resin Base

The first time in our hobby that these well know men have been depicted.

IMG_0249

Figures haves sharp detail and are well cast, there aren’t mould lines, flash or plastic excess in any of them.

IMG_0254

The dogsled with the full six dog team is a very beautiful feature of the box.

IMG_0258

You get one extra dog, without carriage.

IMG_0259

IMG_0260

IMG_0262

IMG_0263

The resin base is maybe no the best we have seen in BUM range, it’s intended for display the dogsled, there are footprints for the dogs, so in order to uses it, you must cut of dogs of their bases, not a hard work with this kind of plastic.

IMG_0257

To do a nice vignette with this base it will need some work and some complements.

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 man driving the dogsled and the dogs itself can be found in other boxes of the series, but the rest of the box is exclusive.

Inbox Review – BUM – 2052 – Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Finally we have found time and light enough to take pictures to some BUM boxes that we have since several weeks ago.
The first is the BUM – 2052 – Royal Canadian Mounted Police, an original subject never done before, where you will find the following content:

A dogsled with 6 dogs.
A lodge.
9 Figures, (one of them casted in the dogsled)

IMG_0251

The lodge came in 4 parts, all are nice and clean cast.

IMG_0289

All the parts fits well, you must do some work with one of the doors side, but nothing hard.

IMG_0290

IMG_0291

The figure in the dogsled is pretty nice and well cast, there are any evidence of flash or mold lines in any of the figures.

IMG_0293

IMG_0298

IMG_0299

As you can see in the pictures all figures haves sharp detail.

IMG_0302

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 resin used for the lodge is very hard.

The man driving the dogsled and the dogs itself can be found in other boxes of the series, but the rest of the box is exclusive.
