AFV Club Kit No. AF 35075
First Look Review by Terry Ashley

AFV Club

As they did for the 10.5cm leFH 18 Howitzers (kit#AF35050, AF35S24) and 8.8cm Pak 43/41 (kit#AF35059), AFV Club have released this Ammunition and Accessory set for the 7.5cm Pak 40 Anti-Tank gun (kit#AF35071) which contains two sprues in olive drab plastic with four types of ammunition plus additional metal ammo canisters and wooden shells cases.

The quality of the mouldings is excellent without any pin marks and the two part metal canisters having separate end caps with handle detail and wooded boxes with separate lids that can be shown open if desired.

The box has painting guides for the ammo and cases with paint numbers given for six of the major paint brands and to add additional detail there is a small decal sheet with stencilling for the various ammo rounds and boxes.

Conclusion:
A nicely detailed ammo set that requires only minor assembly before use to offer some ammo choices to go with the 7.5cm Pak 40 kit or any other vehcile with the 7.5cm gun such as the Marder II/III Ausf.H/M, Hetzers, StuGs, Sd.Kfz.234/4, Sd.Kfz.251/22 and others.

Recommended.
