Blast Models is well known for their range of accessories for 1/35 AFV''s. From the simple accessories, to the more complex conversion sets, they are used in many models that we can see on display and they produce a comprehensive range of accessories and conversion from WWII to Modern vehicles.
This release is one of the most recent in their range and it''s intended for the also recent M2 Half Track from Dragon.

Nice half-track stowage.

I've never heard of Blast Models before. Does anyone happen to know of any distributors for them in the UK or Germany (or failing that, other European countries)?

Steve,

I'm not sure if they have distributors in Europe, but we have their on line shop (http://www.blast-models.com) that works extremely well.
I buy from them direct and the service is flawless.

Agreed.

They have a € 20.00 minimum order limit - however, I find myself having more trouble restraining myself

Steve, another alternative for Blast Models is AFV Magazine's on-line store :

Buy direct !!

The service and update information is exceptional .

The customer service from Blast is as what I have found on the net
1 of the best .
Reason : the figures and vehicle products obtained from their online shop over the last 12 months has been very quick.
I ordered the product from Blast and had it on my doorstep in a week .
Don't get me wrong I am not giving them a big plug here but just speaking from personal experience on what I have ordered and used .

Cheers
Michael

I agree 100% with Michael in that Blast are VERY efficient indeed, however, the only gripe I have with them is the minimum quantity and the postage CAN work out a bit pricey. Also, French VAT is high (something which is TOTALLY outside their control)...
