Hi folks,
I received a parcel of bits from Kit Form Services this morning which I thought might be of interest. Service was excellent - I emailed Howard on wednesday night, had a reply and paid for the parts thursday morning and received a parcel containing said parts on friday.

I ordered 3 lots of parts for detailing a workshop. The first was TQ-164 "Workshop & Service Van Tools & Equipment" which has parts to build "spray gun, bench grinder, hand grinders, electric welder, compressor, pillar drill, commercial socket sets & air guns" plus some hand tools. The kit is a mix of etchings, white metal and resin castings. The etchings are very clean and the resin castings will require very little clean up but there is quite a bit of flash on the white metal castings.

The other two sets I ordered were etches. PE-95 has a selection of tool boxes - short and long "barn" boxes, a cantilever box and a 3-drawer chest. The chest includes a resin lid. PE-97 is an etch of hand tools. They also do a set of spanners but I didn't order them.

I'll post some more photos once I've built and painted the kits but it might be a few months as I need to finish some other projects off first :roll:

Kit Form Services site can be found here : http://www.kitformservices.com - they specialise in 1/24th scale trucks, particularly military types and have quite a number of things that may be useful for Gn15.

Very nice find. Will be ordering the spot lights and most likely that workshop set too :D

It's been a while but I've built most of the toolboxes and workshop equipment. Toolboxes were fiddly but manageable, everything else went together with a little fettling. Photos show most of the items in their basic colours - nothing fancy, Matt black, landrover green, tank grey, silver and red.
