You want more resin goodness? Well you got it. Mario Matijasic reviews Live Resin 1/35 scale US Army scopes, a very useful accessory set for Live Resin weapon kits.

Great review, Mario! Thanks!

Indeed a very great value...one gets four of each scope per set, enough to outfit a (plastic) fire team! Even getting just one of the 1/35 PVS-10s would be a true "gift" for the modern modeler.

Or taken into context, if these were actual U.S. military scopes, this set would be running in the tens of thousands of dollars.

The 1/35 guns have been around for a while. Now we have 1/35 state-of-the-art optics for them. As some have said, the guns don't change too much, but the accessories tacked onto them sure do. Thanks again.

I'm glad you like these, Pete... the scopes really are amazing. The two US Army scope sets from Live Resin are probably all you will ever need for updating optics on modern weapons.

I feel those could really tun into new "Hornet heads"... Not only modelers can replace the weapons included in various figure kits with those from Live Resin, but they can also use various accessories and build the weapon setup of their choice.
