FirstLook


Aero Bonus is a new brand from the prolific Aires stable. Each of the first three sets is ordnance for modern Russian jets.

All the sets are perfectly cast in grey resin with minimal cleanup required. Parts are few, and they should all be straightforward to assemble.

Decals are also included in each set for stencils and unique markings.

I will look forward to seeing what Aero Bonus has in store for us in the future.

480 001 - SPPU-22 Soviet Gun Pods

Suitable for use on 1/48 scale Su-17/22; Su-25 and MiG-27.

 



480 003 - FAB-250 TS Soviet Bombs

Suitable for use on 1/48 scale Su-22; Su-25, Su-37, Tu-22M, MiG-21 and Il-102.

The fins on these bombs are especially worthy of comment. They are amazingly thin.

 



480 005
- B-13L Soviet Rocket Launchers

Suitable for use on 1/48 scale Su-17/20/22; Su-24; Su-25; Su-27; MiG-23; Mig-27 and MiG-29

 

All Recommended.

Thanks to Aires / Quickboost for the review samples
