Stowage for M2 Half-track
Blast Models 1:35 Set #BL35109K
Review by Terry Ashley

This stowage set from Blast Models is designed for the Dragon M2/M2A1 Half-Track (kit #6329) but could also be used with any of the Tamiya Half-Track kits.

The set consists of 9 pieces in light cream resin with the quality of the casting being excellent without any blemishes and only very small pour points and minor seam lines to trim off for easy cleanup but the pour block on one of the bed rolls is located on top of the part which will require a bit of care while removing to preserve the detail.

The detail on the castings is very realistic with well defined details on the folds, bedrolls, tarps with crisp details with the larger castings including the folded up fighting compartment canvas cover for the back of the body as well as a large part to be mounted on the rear of the vehilce with a selection of different packs, tarps and bedrolls.

The smaller parts have the typical rolled taps for the two front fenders and the two side mine racks filled with various items of personal gear as was often the case as well as a few additional packs to uses as required.

Another simple but nicely detailed set to add life to your Half-Track with the minor cleanup making things easy.

Highly recommended 8/10.
