Pete's Hangar has released a set of wingtip bombs and racks for RAAF
Canberra Mk.20 bombers operation over South East Asia during the Vietnam
14 parts are supplied in perfectly-formed caramel coloured resin. The
bombs and racks are ready to use - no cleanup or removal from casting
blocks is required. Detail on these parts is impressive. The bombs have
thin stabilisers and the fuse cast in place; while the racks feature
raised plate and rivet detail.
The wing braces and sway braces are very small parts that are
attached to two resin blocks. A sharp knife and a keen eye will be
required to remove and assemble these smaller parts, but the effort will
be worthwhile. Detail is excellent, especially for 1/72 scale.
Instructions cover the unusual angle of alignment for the racks, and
detail painting and reference.
Thanks to Peter
