Eduard from the Czech Republic is easily the most prolific producer of aftermarket details. Period. Their series of photo-etched detail sets have brought additional fidelity to otherwise bland subjects, and have taken even the best-produced models and kicked them up a notch or two with details that cannot be produced with injection-molded plastic.
In this release, Eduard has produced an extensive weapons set update for the Italeri 1/35 HEMTT or HEMTT gun truck kits. This set provides detailed mounts, gun shields, ammo can holders, ammo cans, and pintle adaptors for the M2 .50 caliber machine guns and Mk.19 grenade launchers. Two lenghts of .50 caliber ammunition is also included. There are sufficient parts to two M2s and two Mk.19s in this set. This will certainly add some eye-catching detail to the Italeri HEMTT gun truck, especially if you also replace the kit weapons with some nice aftermarket parts.
At long last we have a nice set of details to dress up the HEMTT kits that have been on the market for some time plus the recently released gun truck. Thank you Eduard!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
