What’s the story behind these these tiny (1/35 scale) boxes?
Whether a full-scale mock-up of an objective or a small
sand table, the terrain model is an invaluable tool for the combat
leader to visualize fully the battlefield. All combat S2s should be
proficient in the process of creating functional models in a variety of
circumstances and conditions…
and “bolts” of the terrain project is the terrain model kit. The kit is
a simple box containing the basic tools that you will need to construct
any terrain model… It might contain laminated cardboard cut-outs of
meal, ready-to-eat (MRE) box pieces.
