Hauler-Brengun is well known as a supplier of high-quality aftermarket detail parts for armor kits, as well as other subjects. As armor builders are aware, there can be many detail parts that are available to be added to the Sherman M4A, and Hauler has provided 60+ photoetch parts to "detail" the Tamiya 48th scale M4A.

The package containing this Hauler product is the standard clear plastic envelope, with a black card stock insert that adds some rigidity to the product while on the shelf. The product instructions are printed, front and back, on a piece of 5.25"x8.25" paper. All of the photoetch parts share the same parts runner.

While most of the photo etch parts are quite small, the detail is quite exquisite. This project is not a "dash and done" project but will require considerable care when removing the parts from the part runner. The instruction sheet is very clear and can be used with ease. The parts are numbered, both on the instruction sheet and on the part runner sheet as well, so identifying each part, and correctly placing it on the model is straight-forward.

Not for the beginner, this product will add a significant amount of detail to the Tamiya kit. This product is highly recommended for its high level of detail, number of detail parts offered, and the high quality of each of those parts. Thanks to Hauler-Brengun for providing this item to IPMS for review.
