||Renault AHR Holzpritsche
11 pieces, it isn't hard to figure out what goes where with this kit,
but the instructions are pretty disappointing nonetheless. The instructions
note that the builder must supply the drive-shaft. Presumably, this
requires two pieces of thin rod but the number of pieces needed isn't
clear from the instructions. You'll have to fit it together to figure
that out. For the premium price, I expected a presentation more like
that of a Wespe kit. Perhaps, with the investment comes the expectation
that the builder knows all about the vehicle.
Also not provided are decals, clear film for the windows, any significant
interior details for the cab (there are two seats molded in place,
but no steering wheel), or a cover for the truck bed. It's a no frills
kit, which just provides you with the basic vehicle to adorn as desired.
It would have been nice, if some information on the vehicle were provided,
such as its use or non-use in French and German service.
what's provided, there's a fair amount of flash on the pieces and
some big casting blocks to be removed from very visible places, such
as the top of the cab. Just the same, the detail's not bad, once you
scrape off all the flash. - George Buzby
