The kit consists of 20 shell castings in turned brass hollowed out to a depth of about 3mm and a small indentation on the base with an additional etched fret with the 20 end caps with fine engraved stencilling included.
After carefully cutting the end caps from the fret and filing off any excess brass from the fret attachments you then attach the base cap to each shell. The end cap is slightly larger in diameter than the shell to give the lip that should be there but despite and raised inner locating circle on the inside of the cap you will have to ensure the cap sits evenly on shell base.
Using a slow curing cyanoacrylate will give you a bit of time to position the end cap which can be a little tricky to sit evenly on the end of the shell.
The finished shells are nicely detailed and can be used to add life to dioramas or any other setting the target kit finds itself in and this is another useful set in the ever increasing range of ammo rounds and shells from AFV Club.
