Looks good, and I'm sure a few aircraft modelers could use this set also.

For those of you on this side of the pond, a spanner is what we would call a wrench. The two types shown are open end and combination box wrenches.

:-) A wrench is what I feel when I have to go out and have to leave my models! :-) A combination wrench is having to leave my models AND my coffee! ".......throw a wrench in the works......" Naw! It just dosn't have the same ring to it. :-)

I have to agree with Vinnie, This is a superb set that I have in my collection, which I eventually intend to go with the Famo and Trailer that I have in my stash.

Well worth the outlay.

Not this set - this is 1/48th scale...

Ooooops Jim,
I must be going blind as my years advance, well I can say as it comes from the same stable as the 1/35 set it is superb and I shall consider buying one as well as I have a number of the 48th kits in my to build list.

Thanks for the review Vinnie.

The layout is the same as their 1/35 scale hand tools set (35A68). This set will find favour with 1/48 scale- aircraft and armour builders alike.
