35002 European Theater Cobblestone Section

35003 European Theater Sidewalk Section

The first two items in Tiger Werke's accessory line are #35002 European Theater Cobblestone (Street) Section (left) and #35003 European Theater Sidewalk Section (right).

The Cobblestone Street Section measures approximately 9.5" x 4.3" and is cast from light tan colored resin, complete with a separate manhole cover (which offers some interesting diorama possibilities). The accompanying photo has been contrast-altered to look darker in order to reveal some of the great detail cast into this section.

 



The Cobblestone Sidewalk Section measures approximately 9 x 2.75" and is also cast from light tan colored resin. As you can see in the accompanying photo, this too has been contrast-altered to look darker in order to reveal some of the great detail cast into this section. This section also includes a gutter with two sewer drains. Nicely done!

 



These two resin sections can be useful as a simple display base for your vehicle or figures, and are ideal as the foundation for a diorama or vignette.




35004 Kubelwagen Radio Car (Type 821)

The next item in Tiger Werke's detail accessory line-up is #35004, Kubelwagen Radio Car (Type 821). This set consists of 12 finely cast resin parts that will replace half of the rear seat area of your 1/35 Kubelwagen with the radio mount, radio equipment and antenna mount for this versatile Wehrmacht communications vehicle.

 

 

This set is extremely simple in its assembly and installation, yet it provides a variation of the Kubelwagen that you probably haven't seen at any contest (yet). This communications vehicle would look perfect parked next to a Flak battery or a alongside a Tiger tank. The possibilities are endless, but the availability of this set is very limited!

My sincere thanks to Tiger Werke for these review samples!


 

Availability

As I understand it, each Tiger Werke set will only be produced in limited quantities (around 300) and then will no longer be available. At present, the only source for Tiger Werke kits and accessories is:

D&V Selections USA
PO Box 623
Rowlesburg WV 26425
(304) 454-2400 (voice)
(304) 454-2022 (fax)
DVselections@aol.com (email)


Their website ( www.tigerwerke.com ) was not yet online at the time of this writing, but was anticipated to be online soon.

These sets are of the same high quality as their Black Box lineup and are highly recommended to all armor modelers that possess the basic skills for working with resin parts.
