Pro Art Models has another new set of enhancements, and this time it's a vehicle communications package for those of you who are into super-detailing the newer types of vehicles in the U.S. Special Forces genre. This set comes with 18 pieces of high quality light tan resin which is detailed to the max. I have yet to find any bubbles within the resin that are so often found in lesser quality resins. Also included in the kit is a photo etch fret containing parts which make up the shelves, cases, legs, and small switches for the radios and computers to fit on or into. The resin parts consists of the radios, power inverters, PC screens, keyboards, a hand- held GPS, antennas, and even the plug-in power modules. The detail is the best it can get and the photo etch antennas and shelves (including legs) add to the already fine detail. I have assembled some pieces to show what it could look like, and this will be placed into my vehicle when I reach that point in assembly. I should mention that the wires to the equipment are not supplied but can easily be obtained from fuse wire or any kind of small wire that can be acquired from so many different sources.

I seriously recommend this kit for the ultimate in detail for these Special Forces Vehicles. This equipment can also be used as a stand-alone set up for an outside diorama setting.

Some experience will help with the folding and assembly of the photo etch pieces, but with enough care and patience an intermediate modeler should have no problem. You should check out their web site for other great sets which will add even more realism to your models.

I would like to express my thanks to Pro Art Models for sending us these samples for review and IPMS/USA for giving me the opportunity to review them.
