Legend Productions - Sho't Kal Gimel Detailing set for AFV Club


  The new Legend Productions Sho't Kal Gimel detail set for AFV Club's Sho't Kal Gimel is a very nice upgrade. Some parts would also work on the other AFV Club Sho't vehicles. The resin pieces were flawlessly cast. The detail is better then the kit counter parts.  The photo etch fret has headlight guards, a variety of IDF ID numbers, ammo racks, and a PE pieces for the turret stowage basket. The instructions are Legends usual actual photos  of their parts in place with the call out numbers. 

  The new gun mantelet requires some surgery to the turret, but the detail on the resin piece would be worth the effort. Measure twice and cut carefully!  

Some of the details of the kit

The photo etch fret is very nicely done


The new mantelet 

The resin barrel concertina

Resin deck hinges and rivets 


The very nicely rendered stretcher

The replacement smoke grenade launchers have added details 



Resin tube sections 

  This is another high quality upgrade set from Legends Productions. The castings are flawless and the detail is excellent. The photo etch offers increased detail choices to the Sho't kits. A great addition for modelers with some experience with resin sets. Definitely worth the investment!

Highly Recommended


Thank you to Legends Productionsfor the review sample.
