1:35 Eduard

ICM have a new range of German Half Tracks in the making, beginning with the Ausf.A in two boxings with or without figures.  Here comes Eduard with a bunch of update parts to make that kit even better.  As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between.

 

The set consists of two frets of bare brass, and contains a substantial number of small parts, many of which are used in replacing all the tie-downs, clasps and shackles for the pioneer tools and other stowage equipment, plus a total refit of the interior aspect of the vision ports around the cab.  It also includes a laminated instrument panel with film backing plus other equipment in the cab, such as pedals, a new centre console and stowage bins for magazines (the gun kind).  Other items such as brackets; hasp & staple closures with padlocks; engine grille; width-indicator details; tie-downs; directional indicators; a new in-scale gun shield for the cab mounted MG; a large quantity of ammo racks in the rear; interior grab-rails in the rear; crew weapons mounts; gas mask storage; convoy light; number plate and jack mount on the fenders.  Quite a comprehensive set, and you'll need some short lengths of 0.5mm rod to finish off some of the upgrades.
