I have a Tamiya M1046 HUMVEE TOW and went looking to buy the Eduard photo etch.

Surprised to discover that it is very difficult to find and those that I can find are either really expensive or needs to be imported that comes with high postage and customs fees.

Why is it so difficult to find. The photo etch for the M1025 is plentiful.

Are there any alternatives.

In addition to the Eduard set for the M1046, Lion Roar makes set #LE35071 for the M1046.

I think the Eduard set is hard to find due to the large amount of time the product has been on the market and most of the supply has been bought up by model builders.

Here is a link to a partial view of what is in the Eduard set:

My personal opinion is that the Eduard set is the better of the two.
