CMK is part of the MPM organisation and, as such, has been producing resin update sets for quite a while now with typical MPM quality.

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.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to CMK for the review sample.
