by: Engin Kayral [ GRAYWOLF ]

box

The set comes in a 85 x 110 x 35 mm. white cardboard box with a colored printout label. The label shows a photo of the unpainted kit content. Some of the parts like seats, canvas doors, driver and cargo compartment canvas covers are shown assembled to a 3 color NATO scheme painted Humvee. As noted on the label; the set is produced for Revell 1/72 kit. The Humvee on the photo is one of the vehicles in Revell 03137 kit. This kit includes 2 versions; M 998 Cargo/Troop Carrier and M 1025 Armament Carrier. Goffy Model company address, e-mail, website and some general notes are also printed on the label.

All parts are placed in a transparent zip-lock bag with no protection like bubble wrap or foam.

No instruction sheet or painting guide is provided in the box.

parts

The set contains 44 light cream resin parts as listed below;

  • 1 Cargo compartment canvas cover

  • 1 Driver compartment canvas cover

  • 2 Canvas doors

  • 2 Cushion seats

  • 6 MOLLE packs in 3 different configurations of pouches, sleeping mats and canteens

  • 2 Duffel bags

  • 8 Wooden ammo cases

  • 2 Fritz helmets with goggles

  • 1 Rectangular folded tarp

  • 1 set of Bedrolls or rolled tarp (3 casted together)

  • 18 Plastic type water cans



    The casting of all parts is clean and crisp. My review samples had two air bubbles but they can be easily fixed with some putty. Parts can be seperated from casting blocks without losing details. Despite the small scale, parts looks so realistic and details are well defined. I especially liked the detailing of MOLLE packs with pouches and straps. Folds on canvas parts and wood texture on ammo cases are noticeable.
    conclusion

    A good update kit to make your 1/72 scale Humvee look more realistic. Besides the better looking canvas covers, the variety of stowage gear will add a colorful look to your vehicle.

    Recommended.

    Thanks to Petr Zatrepalek of Goffy Model for the review sample.
