The set consists of 19 cleanly cast parts in the usual light cream resin with just the usual casting blocks to be removed and there were no other blemishes to be cleaned up.
The main cupola is a single casting with open periscope blocks and the top hatch ring is a separate part for good detail definition and fits perfectly into the cupola. The two part hatch has nice detail on each side and can be shown open of closed.
Inside the cupola each periscope assembly is made up of three parts, the periscope, top head rest/guard and lower hand grip for a very busy cupola interior.
A small instruction sheet shows the location of the periscope parts to make the assembly quite painless.
The cupola is easy to assembly with good fit of the parts and will add nice detail definition to any Pz III/IV you wish to use this update set with.
Thanks to M&Models for the review samples.
