Introduction

This is a first look at SKP Model Lenses and taillights for the GTK Boxer (Revell of Germany) You get various different size lenses and reflectors for different parts of the vehicle totalling thirty parts in total.

Review

SKP 232 is a one piece etch containing various light lenses, it includes the front head light lenses, rear light lenses and various reflectors. It is I have to say very well made each individual lenses looks different and how you would expect them to look. Some of the lights are very small and will require care when handling them.

I will include a review on fitting these lenses once I get to do the GTK Boxer build which should give you some more information regarding any fit issues

For me the detail that really stands out is the detail behind the clear and coloured lenses, it is this detail that adds an unsurpassed level of realism to this product.

Conclusion

I do believe that these will enhance the model and add some realism to the lights and lenses. The quality of the work is very high and detailed. The R.R.P. is 7.99 Euros
SUMMARY
Highs: I have to say the lenses look really good and the reflector parts are as you would expect them to be on the real lenses.
Lows: Not much to be said here apart from the very small size of some of them but maybe more will come to light on the fitting when I get round to building the GTK.
Verdict: The overall quality and detail, add to that the price at 7.99 Euros make this a great buy in my opinion.
