These are the first resin detail sets
that I have seen from the guys at the Aviation Workshop and I must say
that I am suitably impressed.
These sets match the high quality that the Aviation Workshop delivers
with its excellent range of decals.
The parts are crisply moulded in very pale yellow resin and they have
captured in 1/72 scale all the detail contained in the full size real
In this review I cover two extra detail parts for the F16 Falcon and the
Hawk 115/128. The parts have a small amount of residual resin flash from
the casting block that is easily removed with a sharp hobby knife.
Assembly is straightforward with no apparent modification required of
the kit plastic to allow the new parts to fit. Modellers with very
little experience could install these detail sets.
The sets reviewed are:
CS-137 BAe Hawk 115/128 Centreline
This detail set contains one resin
part for the fuel/baggage pod. The Hawk 115/128 must have a wet
centreline pylon as all other models of Hawk do not have provision for a
fuel tank on the centreline pylon. Baggage pods were previously made
from modified gun pods. This tank is much slimmer and streamlined than
the gun pods.
CS-122 F-16 Falcon Conformal Fuel Tanks
This detail set contains two resin
parts for the over fuselage conformal fuel tanks. These have been nicely
moulded and look to be a simple fit to late model F16 Kits.
These are very nice upgrades to enhance the detail of these kits and
will look very realistic when fully assembled and painted.
Thanks to Aviation Workshop for the samples
