Rubble in the Box - City, Item no. 23422, is a 1/32-1/35 offering from German scenery master Juweela. This set consists four types of ceramic rubble and a bundle of lumber.

Going into their 14th year, Juweela's range of diorama products continues to expand, giving modelers even more products to make the most realistic scale world possible.    Juweela offers scores of products in a dozen scales:

   Juweela creates this set with a bundle of lumber and four individually bagged ceramic products:

    Dark bricks

    Brick wall debris

    Random shingles and mortar

    Masonry pieces

It appears each item in this set is an individual Juweela product.   It looks like this set can cover a large 1/35 area depending on how high it is piled.

The bricks are uniformly cast in crisp brick-red rectangles sporting good masonry texture.  The other three materials feature a variety of sizes and shapes of the fractured materials. 

The debris consists of small broken materials, as well as small segments partially intact.  I see broken concrete, pulverized plaster and ceramic shingles, and broken masonry.  It is all cast with the same gray material.  That material should take paint well.

The wood is hard.  Not too hard to break with bare hands, yet harder than balsa or basswood.  For lumber that is meant to be in a pile of debris, it is bright and clean.  Fortunately, it can be roughed up and stained/painted.  I will use the tried and true india ink wash.



For size comparison I posed figures of 1/32-1/35 scale, and a 1/35 King Tiger.

Final Thoughts

Juweela has released a fabulous apocalyptic "starter set" for your 1/32-1/35 battlefield with Rubble in the Box - City.   It may be an oxymoron to describe rubble as beautifully cast but I think you know what I mean.   It certainly looks better than the toy-like uniformly shaped and sized products of the past, and undeniably easier than forming, mixing, casting and preparing debris from scratch.

I can't complain about any aspects of this set.  It allows a quick and easy way to create a good looking debris field.  Recommended.
