Griffon Model Pz.Kpfw.38(t) Ausf. G Interior

Post  Kreighshoer on Fri Aug 28, 2009 4:41 pm

This detail set for the DML #6290 Panzer 38(t) Ausf. G consists of five pe frets with the C fret for the ammo boxes being included twice, a film for the speedometers, two 5cm lengths of plastic rods of 1mm and 0,5mm diameter, two lengths of 0,3mm copper wire (5cm and 10cm) and one length of 0,2mm copper wire (5cm)!











The amount of details is impressive! Almost every part of the two seats for driver and RO are replaced with pe, the gearshift can be build moveable (!), the floor has a nice pattern and is provided with all securing fillets, the box for the spare MG barrel can either be built with the pe provided or if the original kit part is wanted to be used this can be detailed with clasps, the shutters on the firewall, the fusebox on the RHS sidewall, gas mask holder, the interior for the glacis plate, a new cover for the transmission shaft, additional details for the MG main body, almost the complete main gun cradle and as a special highlight the radios together with the holding frame are included!

The radio front panels are two layer sandwiched for better depth and can be even more detailed with the two frequency selection knobs - the knobs only have four respectively five parts (!) - a small instruction about the cabling helps to give the radios a further realistic touch!

The ammo boxes are really easy to assemble and are best soldered together! In total there are 21 boxes to assemble for the 37mm main armament ammunition and thanks to the Griffon design allowing straightforward assembly this task to not be that mind numbing as one may fear.









Conclusion:

This comprehensive interior set really IS an interior set leaving only minor parts respectively basic remains of the original parts from the kit! This set is very highly recommended for any Pz. 38(t) fan who wants to depict their model with lifted turret in a field workshop setting free all the wonderful details Griffon covers with this detail set!

To complete the interior Griffon offers a separate set for the Praga-Wilson gearbox which will also be reviewed here shortly!

Thanks to Griffon for the review sample!
