FirstLook

 

Wingz from VLS has released another versatile accessory for Luftwaffe aircraft - a 1/32 scale Luftwaffe Starter Cart.

This is more than table dressing for your 1/32 scale Bf 109 or Fw 190. Wingz has delivered a very nicely detailed model in its own right. It will also be an ideal airfield compliment for Wingz' 1/32 scale Service Cart, released earlier this year.

Wingz' 1/32 scale Luftwaffe Service Cart comprises 18 parts in pale yellow resin plus a length of tin wire representing the cable. Casting quality of the resin parts is very good, with fairly manageable casting blocks.

 

 

The frame base for the cart is a bit warped in my sample, but the thin resin should easily be restored to its correct shape after dipping in some warm water. Two of the delicate handles cast onto the main trolley body also broke off in transit, but they were safely in the bag ready to be re-secured when the kit is assembled.

Construction appears to be quite straightforward and should present no problems to modellers who have have a resin kit or two under their belts.

 

 

Conclusion

.

With the explosion of 1/32 scale Luftwaffe model releases over the last few years, it is very pleasing to see complimentary accessories like this starting to appear too.

Now, if only there were more 1/32 scale Luftwaffe figures available too!

Recommended.

Thanks to VLS for the review samples
