Skoda was a Czechoslovakian company,  known today as a car and truck maker, that manufactured bombs in a variety of sizes from 20kg to 250kg, between  the wars, eventually setting up a large factory in Bilsen, Germany at the start of WWII, the subject of a huge raid by the RAF in April 1943. These 100kg bombs were used by a number of forces in the 1930s and any of the central European air force bombers capable of such loads probably carried them. 

Four resin bodies come attached to a strong casting strip and are beautifully cast as we have come to expect from Brengun. The  clean up will be simple and then the PE set of fins and connecting end-plates are added. The completed bombs will be a much more accurate and detailed replacement for kit parts. The only complication I can see is ensuring the fins are at right angles  and that they are spaced correctly to allow the fitting of the connecting end-plates. There is a simple drawing of the construction but no painting instructions are given.

These will be a very useful addition to models of late between-the-war bombers and may probably be used on Spanish Civil War and Italian East African campaign aircraft. I would strongly suggest checking your references, although I found it very difficult to find out much about them.

Recommended.

Thanks to Brengun for the review samples.
