This set gives you one star antenna as seen on later war German AFVs plus various mounting brackets.
The set consists of one plastic sprue with thirteen nicely moulded parts and an etched fret with 17 finely etched parts.
The basic antenna uses the same principal as with the two Tasca “Luchs” kits with a large cone jig over which you bend the etched star antanna for the correct angle on the 'star' which is then attached to the top of the plastic whip antenna and base provided. The only thing to mention is the etched star has a flat profile while the actual antenna would be round in profile.
The interesting thing with the set is you are provided with several detail parts for fitting the antenna to any Panzer IV turret as well as the rear hull antenna mounting. There are also parts for the Panzer IV turret roof ventilator cover and additional etched fittings for the turret roof. Not wanting to start any rumours but could the inclusion of these parts mean a Panzer IV is in the works from Tasca?
Additionally there are also plastic and etched detail parts for tank crew head phones which can be used with any figures, a nice little bonus.
A simple update set to add additional detail definition to any kit as well as the extra head phone parts for a nice little update set.
