FirstLook

 

In each case the parts and decals (where applicable) come packaged in a resealable cellophane bag with a card. Attached to the card stiffener are fold-out instructions. English and Russian text includes an overview of the weapons, their characteristics and dimensions.

 

 

The instructions use clear drawings, and also indicate which aircraft the rocket launchers can be used with; viz:

  • B8M-1 80mm Rocket Launcher: Su-17, Su-24, Su-25, Su-27/30/35, Su-34, Mig-21, MiG-27, MiG-29, and Yak-130.
  • B-13L 120mm Rocket Launcher: Su-17, Su-24, Su-25, Su-27/30/35, Su-34, Mig-27, MiG-29, and Yak-130.

The C-8 Rocket Storage Boxes are obviously for ground use within a diorama or vignette, possibly featuring B8M-1 launchers.

 

 

The detail is superb for the scale, and very delicate; with casting that appears flawless. They make any injected kit weapons instantly redundant, and are as good as I can recall resin any after-market rocket launchers being in this scale. The decal sheets that provide stencil markings for the weapons also appear to be of good quality.

I have used Advanced Modeling’s own images, downloaded from BNA Models’ website, as these give a true indication of the parts’ appearance and are better than I could take!


 

Distribution

Advanced Modeling does not currently have a website as all efforts are focused on expanding their product range. Distribution is through a growing number of on-line stockists and distributors which are listed in the summary table above.

Thanks to Advanced Modeling for the review sample
