Bronco ModelsItaleri

Legend Productions continue their stowage sets with another ample set that designed for the Bronco Models Staghound Armoured Car Mk.I (kit #CB35011) but could also be used on the new Italeri Staghound Armoured Car Mk.I (kit #6459).

The set consists of approximately 70 pieces in cream resin which are again cast is to a very high standard without any blemishes such as air holes of the like and just the usual casting blocks to be removed. Some of these are quite substantial especially on the larger pieces but using the new resin saw from Lion Roar (#LT0026) made short work of these.

There are many individual rolled tarps, bed rolls and camo nets with some curved for placement over the Staghounds fenders and after removing the casting blocks these can be attached in basically any position on the vehicle as you wish.

Again remember when using these items to add straps or other means of support as velcro was not invented during WWII and just having them hanging in mid air or sitting un-tethered on a fender or turret side is not a good look.

Added to these is a large selection of equipment with wooden crates, jerry cans with separate grab handles, British Steel helmets and water bottles plus ammo cases, a couple of buckets, oil cans and some wine bottles and a lantern for something different.

Some of these items may not be seen strewn on a moving vehicle but are very useful for a diorama setting and the sheer number of pieces in the set may be more than you would see on one vehicle allowing you to use the set on two or more kits.

This is another very well cast and detailed set of stowage and there is enough pieces in the set to use on more than one kit and not just a Staghound plus the additional parts for a diorama setting makes the set good value.

Highly recommended.
