This latest etched set is designed for the second version of the DML kit, the one billed as a “3-in-1” item, so it can also be used on the first version of that kit. The only new items I noted are parts for a regimental command pennant and its mounting plate. Finally, where the original set had the bin for the rear surface of the superstructure, this set only has a lid for it, since this is included in this particular version of the DML kit.


The remainder of the parts cover what is now the “standard” for etch sets produced by this manufacturer. This includes clamps, brackets and racks for all of the various tools and other external fittings. There is a completely new smoke candle rack that includes mounting frame and end cap retaining chains. There is also a perforated exhaust guard and various vents and screens for the engine deck and superstructure rear end. New front and rear mud flaps are accompanied by new horn, head-and tail-lamp mounts, as well as the small lifting hooks located on various surfaces of the vehicle. All hatches get internal and external details, while the driver’s visor is also detailed with internal framework and hinge mechanism.

This set is quite simple and will really dress up the basic kit without too much of a headache for the modeler.


Thanks to Eduard for the review sample.
