FirstLook

 

This super-detailed pair of tanks are designed to be fitted to any USN/USMC aircraft from the WWII to Korean War period and come in the familiar clear sleeve with card backing. The two perfectly cast tanks are attached to their blocks by a mere wafer of resin and cleanup will be a snap.

 

 

The tiny PE fret is in a separate sleeve and contains 30 parts which will be used to produce a very detailed pair of tanks.

 

 

A narrow instruction sheet shows where all the catches, finless and filler caps go but considerable care will be needed to attach these as most of the parts are VERY TINY! Certainly beyond my feeble eyesight and clumsy fingers.

However, the more dextrous among you will rise to the challenge and produce a pair of beauties to hang below your aeroplane of choice.

 

 

Removal of the PE parts should be advisedly take place inside a clear bag to prevent a feeding frenzy by the carpet Monster!

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Brengun for the review sample.
