The quality of etching is typical ABER with clean crisp parts and engraved bend lines as well as small marks indicating the location of the many separate bolt heads.
The main parts of the bin body include the bin walls, bottom, back and the rear part of the top section in the one etching which need to be bent to shape with the back having a slight curve to match the turret.
The lid is a separate part that includes hinges that can be made workable allowing you to show the bin open if you wish with the hinges being the 'normal' where you bend to two sets of "fingers" on the lid and rear top section around a piece of thin wire (not included) to form the hinge line.
Added to the main bins are five part front latches including the padlocks with separate side mounting brackets with separate bolt heads for nicely detailed bins.
Soldering the main panels of the bins would be the best option to ensure a robust assembly.
Another nicely detailed turret bin set for the Tiger I initial that will allows you to show the lid open or closed and also to include authentic 'dents' or other damage if you wish and adds a nice touch to the kit.
Thanks to ABER for
the sample set.
