Introduction


Value Gear continues to add new sets in their Tents and Tarps line, all being universal and generic, allowing them to be used almost anywhere. Set #10 is another great 1/35 scale addition to this line of stowage items, with more unique universal roll that can be added as storage to you latest build.

What you get


This new set contains 22 new stowage items to include small rolls, packs, and a few larger ones.

Review


As for the quality, the resin casting is excellent with great detail. The grey resin casting has no flash and only minimal sanding will be required on some pieces to clean up the molding seam on the bottom of the item. The detail on each item is very well done, with straps and buckles well represented.
The smaller rolls and packs are ideal for smaller vehicles or tight spots on larger vehicles. Included in the set is three larger rolls, with added detail onto the rolls, including a shovel on one, with a pick and axe on another.
The stowage items are ready for painting, and from previous experience the grey resin will accept paint readily, but I would suggest a coat of primer before apply your choice of colors.

Conclusion


This is another great set of generic stowage that is perfect to have on hand to add to your latest build. Tents and Tarps #10 is another great addition from Value Gear, and definitely recommended for any AFV builder looking to add stowage.
SUMMARY
Highs: Great casting, well detailed, can be used on any nationality or era vehicle
Lows: None that I can find
