introduction

If you have one of the Dragon, Trumpeter or Italeri kits in this scale of the Elefant or Ferdinand, then this little addition could be for you.

A beautifully turned aluminium barrel, and equally beautifully machined brass muzzle brake are included in thsi set from Polish manufacturers Armorscale.

There isn't much one can say about these products except to say they are everything you would expect. Small but beautifully formed! You get the two parts and a very small sheet instruction sheet, and its' a drop-in replacement for the kit part. Although seams aren't much of a problem on the kit parts at this scale, the detail on the muzzle brake is a definite improvement.

conclusion

Highly recommended. Great value for money.



My thanks to Ian Hanratty of Friendship Models for the review sample.
