Sarissa Precision Ltd.
Review by Pete Harris
As well as the many buildings and accessories produced in MDF by Sarissa they also manufacture several vehicles. Three of these focus on the Edwardian / World War One-era and consist of an open back lorry, a delivery lorry and a type B double decker bus. All three are constructed of 2mm mdf and 1mm greyboard and utilise the same chassis design with common wheels, engine cover and grill. Parts are crisply etched and laser cut making the construction process relatively quick and straightforward to achieve.
To complete the kits you will also need PVA glue, a scalpel or craft knife and some rubber bands. Bigger parts usually drop out of the MDF sheets with minimal effort but smaller ones may require a little assistance with the blade. As usual with Sarissa’s products the parts fit together perfectly and no cleaning or filing is required. Fenders, roof sections on the lorries and the stair sides on the bus are provided in greyboard, a thinner material which can be bent or folded easily to achieve contoured pieces. There’s also some optional extras such as spades, cable drums and protective planking for the bus windows.
The three finished vehicles really look the part and make a perfect compliment to WW1 28mm figures. I particularly like the wheel profiles. These are constructed in three pieces, the spoked wheel and an outer rim on either side to give a very effective representation of the prototype.
