Wow Todd, awesome review. Thank you for taking this one on for me. After reading your review and looking at the pictures you were definitely the right person to send this set to!! Very nicely done and very informative. I am really impressed with the photographs.

I'll definitely have to keep you in mind for other projects!!

Thanks,
Randy

Hello Randy!

Thanks for the words of kindness and the opportunity. Some great tools for the bench and fun to play with. I am looking forward to playing around with the many options some of these products bring to game. It was my pleasure to help out my friend! Thanks!

Hi

nice review and nice work.

i can't help but think though how much this is actually an 'interior' weathering set? Looks to me like an assembly of products that look very familiar? I guess you earn you money, then you takes your choice. I'm still waiting for the AK Balkan Women's Auxiliary Land girls Filter set. Now THAT would be a 'must buy'.

Thanks Andy!!

I am just waiting for the Women's Land Army to just show up! Here that is...to help in the yard!!

Thank you btw , for the kind words!

Well there are certainly more products on the market to work with, it would only make sense that things would be broken down into sets and offered for "select" usages. Armor being at the top of the evolutionary modeling food chain (my opinion) interiors would coincide with that for sure. Personally I I rarely use anything for the uses they were intended for: http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=8651 Not pluggin AK here, even though it's there product I just reviewed but the link takes you to my review of AK's Naval Set here on the Big A. I did use it on a ship at one point...LOL!!!

Hi Zeke!!

Thanks, I think the SBS's show better what a product can do. There is at least one company emerging from your neck of the woods soon my friend! Definitely needed where you are!~

The AK Interactive USA site may not be around anymore (since these were sent before the change), but the Naval items are still on the main AK site in Spain. I am not sure if the sets are still available direct from AK, but certainly there are likely many online or local stores that still have them in stock.

Cheers,
Jim

Thank you Jim!

Available through the Spain AK Interactive website at the moment; the Interior Weathering Set can be found direct: http://www.ak-interactive.com/Productos.aspx?CCat0=020100&CCat1=020110

There are a few smaller online vendors that carry AK as well as a few LHS that are still up and running.

You are correct there is no AK USA...at the moment. I would assume this will change soon enough.
