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.
