First Look

I can now officially confirm that the folks at Squadron/MMD have gone nuts. Well nuts and bolts actually. Here is the latest of a new series of parts in their True Details line - Nuts and Bolts. This set is 'scaled' at 1/16 but you know these can be used in variety of scales depending on the size of the bolts your subject is using. This set has 80 parts in a nicely laid out selection.

Nuts and Bolts Set

If you look closely, there are bolt heads of different types, there are corresponding bolts with nuts for the other side, and there are even extra nuts. If you're detailing a large-scale armored vehicle, car, or even aircraft, these nuts and bolts can help add those missing details to your model. Are these too large, there are other sizes available in this line and these are the types of details that you want to have stashed away for those special projects.

My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
