HyperScale is proudly supported by
MDC has supplemented its 1/32 scale accessory range
with a set of British 3" Rockets - High Explosive. These rockets with
their characteristic bulbous warhead, was seen on a number of different
aircraft including the Typhoon, Mosquito and Beaufighter. Any of these
kits in 1/32 scale will certainly benefit from these highly detailed
24 parts are supplied in grey resin. These are the
warheads, rocket bodies and rocket rails. All these parts are very well
The rear of the rockets are hollowed out, and the back
section is cast with eight splines (representing brackets for the fins)
and four locating holes for the fins. The mounts for the rockets are
cast on the bodies of the rockets.
The fins are provided in photo-etched brass. Each fin
has a small locating tab which should make locating these parts somewhat
simpler than it might have been without them.
Also supplied are ignition wires in flexible resin. This
is a very nice touch.
The rocket rails are each supplied in one piece. Detail
is up to the standard of the rest of the set.
MDC's 1/32 scale British 3" rockets will be a worthwhile
addition to your large-scale RAF ground pounder.
