Leopard C2 MEXAS Stowage Set (LF1284)
is a multimedia set to complement Takom`s Canadian C2 MEXAS MBTs 1:35 scale kit by adding stowage and various bits of gear.
The set includes:
- portable cooler
- 16 clear resin water bottles
- 3 Jerry cans (2 fuel cans and 1 water can)
- 5 stretcher beds
- various duffel bags
- 2 backpacks
- folded tarp
- combat jacket
- small tool box
- 2 ammo boxes
- MRE (one part intended to be placed into a folded carton box and 2 individual MREs)
- 3 sheets of paper (to fold 5 MRE boxes and 9 water bottle carton boxes)
Quality and the molding of resin pieces is excellent, I was able to find only one small air-bubble on the cooler box which can be fixed easily. 2 of the Jerry can handles supplied on their own casting block were snapped off during transport; luckily the damage was not bad, as you still need to trim off the excess resin off them.
While this set has some items you will often see on MEXAS tanks, for example Jerry cans are molded with straps and on mounts ready to be placed on the kit and tarp rolled on the side bin netting, most of the items are generic and useful for any kit. No painting guide is supplied, so modelers will have to consult their references.
