This set is part of my on-going quest for as much equipment for my Operation Iraqi Freedom AFV’s and dioramas.
I think that it has been around for a while (pre-OIF) but still has useful items
3x LAV exterior storage bags
1x camouflage net storage bag
2x tent bags
4x Alice Packs, 1x with PRC 75, 1x camouflage covered pack, 1x AT-4 on pack and 1x with LAW rockets
Compared to the other AEF sets that I am also reviewing this looks to be older, with less in it for the money.
The casting is overall pretty good, with nice detail and just a bit of extra resin “flash”. The pack with the PRC radio on it may limit it a bit for current (SINGARS) standards, but for those where this is not an issue it will be most useful.
All in all a bit expensive for what is in it, but it will be a good add on for my vehicles, recommended.
A quick note about AEF:
I have heard many horror stories about this company, but to their credit (actually “his” credit, I hear Tony is a one-man operation) they did not take any new orders for the entire month of May to catch up on their back-log.
I actually did not get this from them, but from another fellow modeler, so I cannot comment on the timeliness of their current shipping practices.
