Eduard has produced this nice photoetch set to add considerable detail to ICM’s Horch 108 Typ 40 WWII German Personnel Car. The set adds much better detail to the light and equipment mounting brackets on the front fenders, the brackets and plaques on the rear doors, the rifle clamps, and many other miscellaneous details.
The package includes one photoetch fret, one small printed acetate sheet with instrument gauges, and instructions. The photoetch is quite thin and has been reduced further in thickness for parts like the dashboard and mud flaps. The photoetch has a slightly brushed texture to the surface. The parts contain Eduard’s typical ultra-fine detail and many of the pieces have further detail etched on the surface of the part. The gateways or connections between the part and the sprue are small, which simplifies removal from the sprue and cleanup of the pieces. There are 54 individual parts, but there are multiples of several of the pieces. Folding of the parts is clearly shown in the instructions, and they fold easily.
The small parts don’t lend themselves to soldering so I used superglue for assembly.
