Getting into the more complex of the new releases, is this new Griffon Model set. Also for the AA carrying SdKfz 7/2, it is a new set of mesh folding side and rear platforms. These are for the version with the armored cab. The rear section includes stairs. These are designed to allow the modeler to extend and retract the platforms as he desires.

The set includes five frets. Two are duplicated and there is a smaller one to help out with the stairs and other bits. Included in the set are several lengths of copper wire to help with making the hinges work. This is a relatively complex set, as much due to the hinges as in making the mesh screen sides.

The set comes with instructions on how to assemble all the bits and is really quite detailed. Like many of Griffon Model's sets, it does contain a number of very small parts so I'd recommend it for someone who has had a bit of photo etch assembly experience. A folding tool would be quite handy. One thing for sure, having these included with your next project that requires it will really add to the overall look of things.
