Skunkmodels Workshop has produced a sequel Weapons Set after its first release some months ago. This one is also dedicated to modern Israeli weapons fitted to their aircraft. 

Skunkworks’ IDF Weapons Set No. 2 includes two each of the IMI Delilah guided air to ground missile, Rafael Python-3 air to air guided missile, 600 gallon wing fuel tanks including the unique pylons and one AN/AXQ-14 Data Link Pod.

The parts are moulded in medium grey injection moulded plastic to a superb standard with detail finer than the earlier Hasegawa US Weapons sets.

The inclusion of the 600 gallon tank solves the issue of having to use resin after market tanks to display these tanks on late F-16 aircraft.

Each Python-3 missile is made up from ten parts, the Delilah is made from 10 grey parts and 1 clear part, the AN/ANX-14 Data Link is made up from 3 grey parts and finally the 600 Gallon fuel tank is made from 4 grey parts and the unique pylon from 2 parts.

 

 

The detail is so finely moulded that even the fastener detail on the Python missile fins has been faithfully reproduced.

Decals are included for each weapon.  The markings are so complete that at least 4 are provided for the Python 3, which has the least markings; up to 30 decals for the Delilah.

 

 

A colour instruction for paint scheme and decal placing is printed on the back of the presentation box.

 

 

Paint colours are given as Gunze Mr Colour paint numbers and the actual colour or FS number is also given.

 

 

Conclusion

 

This is an excellent addition for the latest kits of the Barak, Brakeet and Sufa that have just hit the market from various manufacturers.

Thanks to Lucky Model for the samples
