Scott Van Aken

Designed for Dragon kit 6542, the armored cab version of the SdKfz 7/2 with the 37mm FlaK in the back and wire side panels, this is the ultimate set to super detail this superb kit. Griffon Model has included a multiple number of photo etch frets along with resin parts to ensure that no detail is left undone. This includes all the wire and strip styrene needed. A listing (taken from the back of the pack) shows what is included.

The instructions are quite complete, taking up several full sheet of placement diagrams. These show you every step of assembling this most complete upgrade set. While at first it seems as if the instructions are redundant, they actually provide the build in layers to be sure that you are able to get everything in its proper place.

Those who have used Griffon Model sets know how nice they are and this one is no different. The set is superbly etched and will add a lot to your particular build.
