NigelR32 Posted April 26, 2014 Share Posted April 26, 2014 1/32 500lb Bomb 4 set Mk1 Design, (KA Models) Catalogue Number MA-32005 Available from Hobby Link Japan USD $24.46 If you're planning on building a Diorama with your favourite Aircraft being loaded with 500lb Bombs, this set is a must. From the thin PE fins to the solid turned metal bomb bodies, they are superb. Here is what you get in the set once unpacked. It's a comprehensive set which will look far more accurate than any injected parts will look. The turned bodies and rear screw shaft are simply superb.. The larger PE fret, measures 87 x 42mm, covering the bomb fins, screws and lifting/mounting eyes. The second smaller fret has one set of four fins only. At the rear of the main body, the fins are mounted onto a screwed on "hub" which has been accurately captured by KA Models in resin. There is a small, but comprehensive decal sheet included in the set, covering all the stencilling you'd ever need. Finally, we have the small instruction sheet, showing assembly and decal placement, though I notice there is no mention of orientation between the lifting eyes and the stencils. All in all, a great little set for the Diorama, or to finish off that beautiful P-51or P-47 you've just built. Although they are constructed mainly from metal, they are very light so mounting on the pylons shouldn't pose too much of a problem. Thanks to Hobby Link Japan for the review sample. Highly recommended. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
