The mantlets are cast in a light cream resin and are blemish free with a very good textured finish and all that is needed is to remove the casting block and make whatever minor mods are needed to mount on any Tiger I kit.
Each set has three different mantlets and with some you have to look closely to see the subtle differences with a couple also having the rain guard above the sight apertures, which was a field modification so you can add this yourself on the other mantlets from thin card if you wish.
The detail on the mantlets includes the muzzle of the co-ax machine gun and they all have the large armoured barrel cover as a separate part which fits into the recess in the middle of the mantlet. Some of the armoured covers had minor warping that sees the open end not completely round but heating in hot water and shaping with a suitably sized rod should fix this.
These Ammo sets are distributed by AirConnection Canada.
Thanks to Michael of AirConnection for the sample sets.
