M151 Accesory Set

Another great kit from Legend Productions. This Set provides many nice accesories to fill up a Jeep. They'd also go a long way towards filling-up a 'Nam era Diorama very well too! (Oh Yeah! Ed. ~ Gunnie)

This Kit includes:
5 wheels (4 1 spare)
1 set sandbags for Hood (over the folded windshield)
1 set sandbags for bed of jeep (mine protection)
1 ALICE pack
2 helmets
1 gas can
1 gas mask case
1 jeep mounted radio (PRC-75 I believe)
1 Backpack radio
1 Merimite food can ( for a hot lunch in the field)
1 Water Dispenser (for cool drinks)
3 c-ration boxes
3 c-ration cans (Yummy)
3 coke bottles
1 coke can
1 .50 cal heavy MG (complete with PE detailing parts!)
17 smoke grenades
1 M72 rocket launcher
1 AK-47
1 M-16
1 RPG
1 M-60 machine gun
4 .30 Cal ammo cans
1 20mm Ammo can
6 .50 Cal ammo cans (5 closed, 1 Open)
1 small sheet of Lead foil
1 length of Chain
2 sheets of PE details (1 for .50 cal & 1 sheet of Wire cutter & Misc..)

 


Everyting is molded in a creamy tan resin. There's a lot of crisp detail molded in. The sandbags are even to scale (unlike some other sets). Some of the weapons are very fragile (my M-16's barrel was broken off) This kit gives you a lot of possibilites for loads or Dioramas. The instructions are minimal, but helpful.

 


The kit seems a bit pricey compared to the M1 Accessory Set. The MSRP is the same for both kits but, you get more in the M1 set. Nonetheless, it's still a very good value for the money.
