First Look

This interesting item is a set of three fire extinguisher blanks that are designed to work with either the Aber Tiger photo-etched extinguisher nozzle and mount, or with the Voyager Models mount for the Trumpeter 'Sturer Emil'.

Fire Extinguisher Set

You can use this set in other German armor applications, but you'll need to do the minor adapations yourself - these are designed as drop-in replacements for the above projects.

While not for the average modeler, if you've gone to the time and expense to acquire and bend-up those photo-etched detail sets from Aber or Voyager, why ruin those details with plastic parts that may have seamlines (or remnants)?

This set is definitely recommended.

My sincere thanks to Ausfwerks for this review sample!
