It appears to me that there are 2 differnt maufacterers of tool clasps in 1/16th scale, Voyager and Aber. If any one knows of another manufacterer please let me know. I am building a Hetzer so I need a "late" style.

Does anyone have an opinion on the ease of use, workability and accuracy of the two differnt clasps in 1/16th? Barring anyone with experience in 1/16th I would welcome opinions in 1/35 and hope it is will apply to larger scale scale.

Thanks

I got it by mistake... I THINK it has early and late tool clips both but I haven't looked at the fret in some years. In 1/16 it shouldn't be hard to do the clasps. For 1/35 I liked the Lion Roar clips myself. I thought they were easier to handle. A lot of the multi part clips are out of scale for 1/35 too.

Hello ...
This is a clasp Aber 1/16. I think it looks good after assembly. This is a little difficult to do - two hours mount this copy ...

I will go with Aber. What kind of camera did you use for this? That is quite a close up.

Thanks
