Introduction

Accurate Armour have a good range of additional model accessories and produce some unique items not covered by other manufacturers. This is a look at a handy set of Batteries in Kit No A092. Although not specified, I would hazard a guess these are WW2 battery types as similar parts exist for their Loyd Carrier Starting and Charging. That said both pre and post war use could most probably be made of them.

The Set

The set contains 4 trees with 4 different types of batteries on each, in other words 16 batteries of 4 types. They come packed in the standard Accurate Armour format of a strong plastic bag with a cardboard cover detailing the manufacturer and the product details.

Cast in a dark grey resin, the batteries are nicely detailed and expertly cast with no flaws or cause for concern.

Removal will be a simple process with a sharp razor saw and painting could take place before or after that event.

Conclusion

A very handy set of batteries to add to your vehicles, or diorama scene. For modelers, the devil is in the detail and this little set may provide that something extra that you are looking for.

With 4 different types, you should have something useable for tanks, carriers, trucks or cars, or for that matter wireless sets.

Not a must have item but a very useable one. Normal precautions apply when working with resin.

Greying slightly, but young at heart. I've been teaching adults off and on for most of my life. Left the services in 85 and first started modelling in about 87 for a few years. Then I had a long spell when I didn't build anything (too busy) and really just got started again during the summer of ...
