US Common Equipment - Vietnam

by: Jim Lewis [ GUNTRUCK ]

Plus Model of the Czech Republic is one of my favorite armor model accessory producers. Their items are crispy cast and wonderfully detailed - and inexpensive on top of it all. Recently, they released a US equipment accessory set for Vietnam-era modelers. This set comes with an instruction sheet - and decals for the fire extinguishers, oil drums, and "Coca-Cola" soda cans! The decal registration is sharp and vibrant. The creamy tan colored resin parts come packaged in bubble wrap - Plus Model cast the handles cleanly - and open - on the drums! Mine arrived safe and sound - with no damage whatsoever. Highly Recommended.
