Trakz has released a second detail set for 1/35 scale M26 Pershing models.
This set provides two alternate mantlets with different canvas covers plus
a covered muzzle brake.
All the parts are supplied in cream coloured resin and are cast perfectly.
The parts are solid but cleanup will be a breeze. One mantlet has a block

The two styles of mantlet are:
one with a simple dust cover between the mantlet and the turret, and
one with a canvas cover over the whole mantlet and the base of the barrel,
also extending to the turret.
The canvas texture and fastener detail on both mantlets are very well
In reality, this set could be used on two different models. The full cover
looks more like a travel cover, and would seem to be more at home paired

be in place in action or on the move.
This nice accessory will distinguish your M26 from all the other Pershings
on the model club table!
