Has anyone tried using the Lion Roar (or Eduard) set for this model.

The set is designed for the Trumpeter kit. Accurate Armours Faun is great but it's missing the diamond plate detail on the rear fenders and forward tray.

Thanks

Both AA and Trumpeter kits are correct in the fact that diamond non-skid plate detail is missing, as it was not present on early vehicles. It was added to later vehicles. So unless you are building a later vehicle you can leave your fenders smooth. Unfortunately I don't know if LionRoar or Eduard parts fit to the AA kit if you still want to use them.

Thanks Pawel, shame on my research skills!

I was not looking forward to hacking up the AA kit, thanks for the information.
