Eduard M-1025 Humvee additional
armor plate Iraq (35778)
by Frank De Sisto
Photo-etched brass in 1/35th-scale for Tamiya kit. Price: $22.95 USD.
This set contains a very basic type of up-armored door system, featuring
the style that allows the crew to lean out of the vehicle. The armored
strip along the lower hull is attached to these “half-doors”.
To these, hinges, locks and splash strips are attached, as is the small
spaced plate over the set of vents on the forward passenger side of the
base vehicle. Finally, there are simple sliding closures for the interior
surface of the doors.
As an option, the doors can be left opened or closed, while the utter
simplicity of this set will appeal to novices.
Recommended with reservations.
