Hi Darren,

Thanks for the review. I'm not sure why I'd want to buy this, especiallly as there is the absence of spacers between the shields, which as you say is an exercise in frustration waiting to happen.

I think I'll stick with the kit shield that looks perfectly acceptable.

Thanks agin.

Al

Alan, I was thinking much the same myself - "what does this bring that actually improves the kit?" Answer, not much.

But thanks for the looksee Darren.

All I can say in reply is that the small photo etched fret is excellent and recommend to E.T. Model to release that fret as a bigger offering to be used as a general set for British and Common Wealth AFVs. I suspect it would be very popular.
