From what I understand, Turetcast is a home based resin accessories manufacturer, so some items suffer from soft details, sink holes and a few bubbles, not unlike some of the lower end resin producers and the few items that suffer from these anomalies can be fixed. The details on the stowage boxes are nice and crisp.

The set includes:

  • 2x rear turret storage boxes, one for NWE and the other is a Crusader type box.
  • 2x crates (big and small).
  • 3x small rolled up tarps.
  • 1x rear hull stowage box.
  • 1x cluster of ammo boxes (three of the same type and a big ‘sardine can’ type) and a rolled up tarp.

I give it three stars, details are a bit soft and without faults, but still good for a home based producer. Provides options for NWE or NA.
