FirstLook

This set will be handy for diorama builders as well as those who like to build maintenance-type vehicles, as they provide some nifty and very delicate little details, although at a price that some might not be willing to pay.

The parts in this set will allow the modeler to build one tool box of the type that when it folds open, has several levels of trays that extend. There are separate fold-up parts for each segment of the box as well as dividers and external hinge arms. There are ďAĒ-frames for the carrying handle, which itself must be sourced by the modeler using brass or plastic rod. To finish things off, there are 18 tools, including box and open-end wrenches, pliers and tin snips, as well as screw-drivers. Some of these work as flat items, but some (the screwdrivers for instance, donít).

Recommended with reservations.

Thanks to Eduard for the review sample.
