TRAKZ newly released DUKW Canvas Cover for Italeri's 1/35 scale kit could not be much simpler. There is one larger resin piece to cover the cargo deck and one for the driver's compartment.

Both parts are beautifully cast in pale yellow resin. The driver's hood has a casting block that will require some care when removing. The cargo cover is almost ready to use. There are a few resin blocks on the top of the part that will need to be cut off and sanded to shape. On my sample, one of these small blocks had been snapped off and intruded on the resin of the hood. This will need a little putty to restore the surface.



These covers will make a major difference to the appearance of your 1/35 scale Italeri DUKW.
