Aviation Workshop may be best known for their books and decals, but they also have a growing range of resin accessories.

One of theie new releases is a BAC/EE Underwing Pylon and Rocket detail set in 1/48 scale. 

This high quality set allows for some additional detail that is not supplied in the kit. 

The parts are crisply moulded in very pale yellow resin. They capture all the detail contained in the full size wing pylon and rocket pod. 

The set contains 2 x inner wing pylons and 2 x rocket pods No1 Mk2.  The set is designed for use with the Airfix Canberra kits and the instruction sheet contains detailed measurements and a drawing for accurate installation.  The parts have a small amount of residual resin flash from the casting block that may easily be removed with a sharp hobby knife.



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

This is a very nice upgrade to increase the detail to the Airfix Canberra kit and will look very realistic when fully assembled and painted.

Thanks to The Aviation Workshop for the review sample
