The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  This set contains photo etch parts for detailing the cab such as pedals, instrument panel, door mirrors, windshield wiper blades and a few other parts.  There are also resin parts for detailing the fuel tank and hoses on the rear section of this airfield refueling truck.  You actually cut open a side panel and insert the resin fueling panel into the side of the rear of the truck and then attach fuel hoses.  There is also a new resin door to replace the door you cut away.  You also get solder to represent the refueling hoses.

This set does a wonderful job added much more detail to the Opel Bliz airfield refueling truck and what a great addition this truck would be to your next WW2 Luftwaffe airfield diorama. 

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from SBS Model or from the many retailers that carry their products.  

I would like to thank SBS Model for providing me with this product sample.
