This set contains
2000 ceramic bricks in slightly varying shades of "brick red".
(At least, I have to take Juweela's word for it that there are indeed
2000, I haven't actually counted them.)
Each brick is 0.36cm x 0.18cm x 0.09cm (0.14" x 0.07" x
0.04" for the 'imperialists'), which is actually quite tiny,
and seemingly suitable for your average brick in 1/72. Honestly, I
think they look more like paving tiles, as the regular brick in my
home country is slightly more square in cross-section. Also, the German
designation for this set is "Ziegelsteine" , which translates
as "tile-stone". For more info see this
The surface of each tile has a realistic rough texture and an occasional
air bubble. The latter can be easily modified with the point of a
cutter to simulate wear. More wear can probably be simulated with
pastel powder and/or oil washes.
While not exactly cheap, I believe this set will do very nicely on
any diorama with damaged buildings, saving the modeler huge amounts
The set comes in a posh silver corrugated
cardboard box with wrapper. Inside, the bricks are protected by their
individual plastic bag and thick foam pad.
Note that this review is more than
likely also applicable for sets 27037, 27038, 27039, 27041 and 27042,
as they contain the same bricks, only in different quantities.
