AFV Club have previously released a Ammunition and Accessory set (AF35062) as a companion to the two leFH 18 Howitzer kits (AF35050 and AF35s24) which contained just one type of ammunition plus additional items such as ammo boxes and containers as carried in the SdKfz.11 and have now followed this with this set of brass shells and cartridge cases.

The set consists of three types of ammunition with fours rounds of each type included plus four empty cartridge cases.

The rounds are machined to a high standard and while fairly small have excellent details including details on the base of the shells and cartridges. The cartridges are hollowed out for about 1/3rd of their depth but don’t fit to the shells as they come.

All that is needed is to paint the shells and cartridges before use to add variety to your leFh 18 dioramas.

On comparison the HE shells in set 35062 are the exact same size as the brass shells in this set which goes to show AFV Club didn’t compromise with the plastic items but the brass shells do have crisper details as well as the base detail not present on the plastic shells.

A nicely detailed ammo set that requires no assembly or cleanup before use to offer more ammo choices to go with the two 10.5 Howitzer kits.
