CMK is part of the MPM organisation and, as such,
has been producing resin update sets for quite a while now with typical
These three new sets are in the usual blister packs
and most, but not all, have PE frets as well.
7074 B-17 bomb bay
Set 7074 is for the Academy B 17 F/G and is the
Bomb Bay. There are eleven nicely moulded parts in resin but this
set does not include photo-etched parts nor a bomb load. The
instructions cover a parts plan, colour recommendations for Humbrol
Paints, a five step construction diagrams and a list of other new
1/72 scale releases.
7076 B-17 interior
Set 7076 is also for the Academy B 17 F/G but
is an interior detail set and is consequently much bigger and more
detailed. With fifty resin parts and a large PE fret with more than
fifty parts, this set covers the bomb-aimer's station, cockpit,
radio compartment and waist gun position. It dose not cover any of
the turrets. Instructions are similar to the Bomb-bay set but with
ten construction diagrams.
CMK 7094 F4F armament
Set 7094 is for Hasegawa's 1/72 F4F Wildcat and
details the Gun-bays. With 17 resin parts, you can open the two wing
gun-bays and also the life raft-bay in the rear fuselage spine. The
four PE parts are for the open gun-bay hatches. Instructions are as
before but with six clear constructional drawings.
For anyone who likes to super-detail their models,
these CMK sets are the Ant's Pants.
Thanks to CMK for the review
