Royal Model offers resin replacement wheels, vehicle seats and a comprehensive update set consisting of resin and PE pieces, all designed to bring the Italeri kit to the next level. This review covers Lince Seats (810).

My only comment on what appears to be a highly detailed and very worthy after market product refers to the review itself.

For those of us who do NOT recognize the Lince brand name nor the terminology used, it was only after looking at the last two product application photos that I realized these seats were something to be installed in a military ground vehicle. My first assumption was a rotary wing application.

It is often times not safe to presume that the same level of pre-knowledge is possessed by everyone reading a given article. Sometimes the old fashioned, basic rules of story telling; "who, what, when, why, and where" often used in newspaper writing must still be covered.

It was only because this was listed under the "Armor" section that I looked at this review at all.

The first sentence in the review says: Italeri released their LMV Lince kit (#6504) in 2015.

I thought the introduction paragraph covered all the "who, what, when, why, and where" you mentioned... I guess I was wrong?

Best,

I knew that the seats were for ground vehicles simply by their style, though I will admit that this might have mislead some individuals. And yes, they sort of look like something that you'd find on a KC-10, etc. Either way they seem like a really nice upgrade.
