Hmmmm......I ain't buying it. I've seen a ton of gear piled on tanks during the war, but never that much. It's nice looking stuff, just not too realistic. The house ruin looks pretty nice.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is what Black Dog do all the time. First noticed it with their Schwimmy stowage set, but there are others such as the Panzer IV not so long ago, where you wouldn't be able to get out the turret hatches due to all the stuff behind the additional armour plates.

I've bought & used several of their accessory sets, and am glad that Black Dog includes a larger variety of gear in their sets. Also, I'm not aware of any penalty for not using all of the pieces on any single vehicle.

Are you serious? You donít have to use everything they give you. Most stowage kits give you extra. Whatís important is if the gear is relevant and correct for your time period. Some offerings mix todayís stuff with past eras.

Given pic 11 shows most of this is a one piece casting, with just the back packs, stretcher and rolled tarps (and coils) separate, Jeff and Alan have a fair point here.

That one piece casting has enough stuff in it for a platoon, not just a crew. And they're folding cots, not stretchers. The 1/35 scale sets have enough separate pieces to do several vehicles but with that one turret casting, it's a bit much. But never, say never, there's always someone who does pile up that much. But not the majority.

So how does the gunner and loader get in and out? Take away those elements and you have very little you can use from the cost of the set.
