Stryker - slat armor sets

Hello, friends!

On this moment is available 4 sets of slat armor for Stryker:

1)http://www.eduard.cz/products/card.p...=&page_start=0

2)http://www.voyagermodel.com/productl...itemid=PE35200

3)http://www.proartmodels.be/mod_produ...allery_026.htm

4)http://www.griffonmodel.com/product_...=37&classid=39

Somebody can make detailed comparison of all four sets (Slat)?

Maybe smbdy was engaged this problem?

I want to start build my Stryker 1126 or 1130 with Slat and it is necessary to understand, what set to buy..

I tend to a Pro Art Models set (PAU-35026) or Grifon model set, but I am not assured.

Help me, please

I talked to Joe Bakanovic from Tiger Model Design at the AMPS convention about a slat armor set in resin (he has the capacity to cast high-strength resin very thinnly) and he said he had an initial set of masters in hand and was well on the way to producing a set, and added that he was shooting for a retail price less than the PE sets...
I'm holding my breath and saving my money!

Holeshot, majorchuck thnx for yours answers!

i'm agree with majorchuck about resin slat- i think this set must be very breakable..

I have found one more set of slats, but only "in construction", not available on market yet..
this is AEF Design model company -

KA-02 Stryker Slat Armor

I will wait its some time for comparison

At present on a parity the price/quality sets settle down thus:

1)Pro art
2)Grifon
3)Eduard
4)Voyager

The voyager so has not pleased for the first time such bad similarity to a prototype(not realistic thickness of additional armor etc..)
