This review is from: Battlefield In A Box Rural Road Expansion Set (BB140) (Toy)
I've reviewed several FoW items now,mainly the vehicles,and have often said that these are the best you can get although they do have a few problems,and the same applies to these road sections. On the plus side it's great to be able to create a detailed road layout, and the addition of the railway crossing and rural to cobblestone road transition piece are brilliant and well thought out, blending perfectly with the other cobblestone roads and railway tracks available from FoW. I had a problem though in that my previously purchased rural roads are a completely different colour to these expansion pieces. Whereas my existing roads are a muddy brown colour, in this set it appears that they went way overboard on the highlighting colour so that you have sandy coloured roads with a few brown bits looking more like desert roads than rural ones. As they're supposed to be an expansion to your earlier roads this looks a bit poor. I was going to return mine for exchange to see if other sets were better,but in the end I got great results by repainting them myself using a sample pot of "warm chocolate" paint from a DIY store. The finished items looked far better than the originals!!
