Aviation Workshop has released a 1/48 scale set of Practice Bomb Carriers & 25lb Practice Bombs for the BAC/EE Canberra. This set is produced to a very high standard and allows for some additional detail that is not supplied in the Airfix or Classic Airframes kits.

The parts are crisply moulded in very pale yellow resin. They have captured all the detail of the full size wing pylons and practice bomb carriers.

 

 

The set contains 2 x inner wing pylons, 2 x bomb carriers and 4 x 25lb practice bombs.  The set is designed for use with the Airfix Canberra B(I).6, B(I). 8 and B15/16 kits.  The parts have a small amount of residual resin flash from the casting block that will easily removed with a sharp hobby knife.

Assembly should be straightforward with no modification required of the kit plastic required.  Modellers with very little modelling skills should easily be able to install this detail set.

This is a very nice supplement to 1/48 scale Canberra kits and will look very realistic when fully assembled and painted.

Thanks to The Aviation Workshop for the review sample
