Accessory Review: cyber-hobby.com 1/35 scale Upgrade Package No. 3878;
1/35 scale OVM Tool Set for Tiger I; 50 parts (31 etched brass, 19 in
grey styrene); retail price US$8.95
Advantages: upgrades any manufacturer=92s older Tiger I kit
Disadvantages: none noted
Rating: Highly Recommended
Recommendation: for Tiger fans with older kits or those from another
Just the other day I was talking with some friends and the consensus
option was that with the plethora of DML kits out there, why don=92t
they offer upgrades for kits that they already sold?
This is pretty much what cyber-hobby.com, DML=92s =93boutique=94 affiliate=
is doing. For example, here is another of their sets which upgrades
the OVM for a Tiger I. What they provide is a set of relatively
generic tools with all of their attachments in etched brass. Ergo, if
you have a Tamiya or Academy Tiger I with stick-on tools you can
easily upgrade them with this set to separate fastenings.
Ditto offerings of DS Plastic tracks also on offer from cyber-
hobby.com and previously reviewed.
Overall this is a smart idea =96 if you long for a nicer model but
don=92t want to shell out another $50 or even $100, the upgrades are the
way to go.
Thanks to Freddie Leung for the review sample.
