HGW Models After Market Sets for He-111 & Ju-88

HGW came onto the scene a while back with seat belts made of a micro mesh. This material maintains its shape and colouring yet can be crumpled up and made to look used. The belts require cutting with a sharp blade and then threading through the PE buckles. I have been using another vendors belts up to not but very much wanted to try these ones. I got the added benefit from the two sets I bought of getting seats etc in resin at the same time. The set I will look at here is for the He 111 in 1/32.

Gaspatch Turnbuckles

GasPatch Models have just released new metal turnbuckles which are an excellent addition to any model requiring rigging. They are made of metal and quite finely detailed. They are perfect for use with the many WW1 aircraft that are now on the market, and I believe they will revolutionise the way that a modeller approaches one of the harder tasks of modelling WW1 aircraft. I am reviewing the 1/32 scale parts and they are also available in 1/48th scale as well. At the time of writing, they are priced at 14.50 Euro per pack of 30 turnbuckles.

They are available from this website:

Panther D Workable Track Links for German VK1602 Leopard

The box it comes in...

When Trumpeter announced a series of 'workable' (articulating) track links, I thought that this would be a nice alternative as I had high hopes for the track sets included in their kits.  With that in mind, I ordered two track sets, this one and the PT-76.  When I ordered the Panther track, they were described as Panther G Late Workable Track Links.  This was an error which has been corrected by the distributor.  What I got were tracks labeled "Panther D Workable Track Links" with "for German VK1602 Leopard" underneath in a font 1/4th the size of the one above.
