I checked the Voyager website but really didn't solve anything.
Just what comes in the Voyager PE set 35418?
Do you just get the mounting points for the add-ons that attach to the fenders?

I know someone had to have built one.

First, are you very very experienced with photo etch, then forget it.
If you are experienced, you get a truckload of etch. Everything you see you get.
Belly armour, exhaust and intake louvers in etch, various fine details and the full array of TUSK skirt armour and mounts, DUKE masts, thermal sights, TUSK loaders weapon sheild....the lot. You don't get the turret bins, stowage rails and BRE.
It took me 8 months to do my USMC set from Voyager.

Nope, they are only included in the TUSKII jumbo set, if you look on the Voyager website, the lead picture for 35419 shows the M1A1 and lists all the other sets used on the bottom of the picture, you need to check all those numbers to see what they have used.
The TUSKII set for the M1A2 is the best in my opinion, it has so much in it.
Once again, this is NOT a beginner etch set, it is very difficult to get some things built, as in the bustle racks are especially difficult, the basic set is great though. Put it this way, if you think the M1070 and it hoses are bad, the bustle rack is a nightmare.
