Stug.III.Ausf.C/D late fenders

introduction
As well as the external set for the Dragon StuG.III Ausf.C/D kit number 6009 (set number 35911), Eduard also produce a replacement set for the models fenders. This is a quick in-box look at this set.


The Set
The set is again primarily for the Dragon StuG.III Ausf C/D kit number 6009 but could if required be used on other producers StuG's with a little bit of extra care but in all honesty if you had another kit you would pick up the Eduard set to match.The Eduard set comes on 2 frets and contains all the parts you need to be able to replace and detail the kits side, front and rear fenders giving a more scale look to model than the molded plastic ones.
The instructions are in the usual high double sided colour A4 sheet, and shows you exactly how the new sets fit together. The set also includes scale replacement brackets for all the lights and the fender mounting brackets. The fragile nature of the set will allow the builder to produce the bent appearance or damage that is often seen in photographs of this vehicle.


In conclusion
This in my mind is again very nice set and with the other set 35911 would allow you to build a highly detailed model. Care full removal of the kit items is required so not for the total amateur but then no photo etch is but with the excellent instructions (also available on line), patience and time and excellent detailed model can be produced.I would recommend the use of a hold and fold or similar to help with some of the smaller parts and box assemblies.
