Three types of projectiles are provided (3 pieces of each):

- standard armor-piercing round (AP) Pzgr.Patr.39,

Parts are precisely machined with very tiny details reproduced nicely. The fit of aluminum projectiles to brass shells is good, but tightens when parts are pushed together and it is actually not possible to push the round all the way into the shell without using considerable force. This means that it is rather one time assembly, as once properly assembled these parts would be difficult to separate.

Expertly machined Armorscale ammunition should be excellent addition to German armor models or dioramas.\

Many thanks to Armorscale for the review sample!
