M1126 Stryker Detail Sets
Voyager Model, 1/35 scale
If you are looking for a challenge and you really want to make that AFV Club Stryker stand out from the rest, then any of these sets are for you.
There are three sets availiable, the first being the Slat Armour that is quite a common site now in Iraq. The set consists of eleven sheets of very high quality photo etched parts and a twelve page intruction book. Obviously this is not a set for beginners and one will have to be patient when putting this set together, but the end result will make for a stunning Stryker.
The second set is a little less complex although care will still be needed when putting together. This set is for the spaced armour also commonly used and consists of three sheets of etch and a two page instuction sheet.
Last but by no means least is the king of the sets which includes all that has been mentioned in the prevous sets and then some, being suspension covers and enhancments which look very complex, and also an overall detail set to really spruce things up.
The set consists of about thirty sheets of etch. The instruction sheets look like a copy of War and Peace - twenty pages. Whew!! This is defiantly not for beginners and will even test those with experience with etch.
If you want to do a long term project then get yourself an AFV Club Stryker and one of these sets, you will undoubtedly have an awesome looking replica at the end of it, that is for sure, or you will go stark raving mad trying.
The above three sets are all excellent and are highly recommended to any experienced modellers thinking of building the Stryker. l like the fact that they have been done this way so that one can choose the degree of detail that they would like to add to their kit.
Thanks to Voyager Model for the samples
