Just the other day I was talking with some friends and the consensus option was that with the plethora of DML kits out there, why don’t they offer upgrades for kits that they already sold?
This is pretty much what cyber-hobby.com, DML’s “boutique” affiliate, is doing. For example, here is another of their sets which upgrades the OVM for a Tiger I. What they provide is a set of relatively generic tools with all of their attachments in etched brass. Ergo, if you have a Tamiya or Academy Tiger I with stick-on tools you can easily upgrade them with this set to separate fastenings.
Ditto offerings of DS Plastic tracks also on offer from cyber-hobby.com and previously reviewed.
Overall this is a smart idea – if you long for a nicer model but don’t want to shell out another $50 or even $100, the upgrades are the way to go.
