Minor out of Spain are a newer player in the world of after market accessories. They are a force to be reckoned with! Workable leaf springs on a 1/35th scale model? You better believe it! This set is a combination of 3 of their previously released sets. They are:
AVM35002, SCR510 U.S. WW II Radio set
AVM35003, workable leaf springs
VMD35000, stowage rack
This update set in intended for use with the Tamiya U.S. 1/4 ton truck kit. It is adaptable to the Italeri and Revell kits as well. The set consist of 4 sheets of photo etch and the detail is outstanding!
The attachment points are the thinnest that I have seen. The brass is thin and very workable. The instruction sheets are the best that I have seen in any photo etch sets and even contain the wiring diagrams for the radio units!
Assembly is straight forward and the fit of the parts is perfect. You will need some sharply pointed tweezers and some good eyes for this set!
Above -There are 17 parts on this assembly!
Outstanding set! This is the nicest photo etch that I have worked with. The radio set alone is worth the cost of this set and you get many extra parts as well. There are even parts to detail up the US gas cans! Check out Minor's website: www.minor-web.com to see their complete line of detail sets.
My Sincere Thanks to Minor for the review sample!
