FirstLook

 

These three dark grey resin packs are essentially identical (except for their size) and consist of a pair of chocks made up of 3 resin pieces each, with the 1/144 pack containing four chocks. I assume there would also be a 1/48 rendition but I did not see these for review. Castings are great and there is no flash.

 

 

Each chock consists of the fixed front wheel block and a horizontal square section rod, along which slides a rear block with a locking pin. These appear to be workable in 1/32 and 1/72 scale but your eyesight will be sorely tested with the 1/144 ones! The 1/144 ones lack the locking pins, which would be microscopic.

These are a common sight on board aircraft carriers and will enhance a deck scene.

Thanks to Brengun for the review samples.
