Background

 

The SC50 bomb (Sprengbombe Cylindrisch 50) was a type of drop ordnance or free fall bomb built by Germany during World War II. Used as a general purpose bomb, it had a one-piece drawn steel body and its total weight was 48 to 55 kg.

FirstLook

 

Eduard Brassin offers a growing range of aftermarket bombs, amongst the latest of which is the set of eight SC 50 bombs reviewed here. Eduard also offers the SC 50 in 1/48 scale as well.

The bombs come attractively packaged in a blister pack with sponge cushioning.

 

 

The instructions detail the construction of the bombs with well drawn and easy to follow drawings. A small sheet of decals provides the bomb markings. A PDF copy of the instructions is downloadable from Eduard’s website.

 

 

The quality of casting is excellent, with the casting-blocks attached to the bomb tailfins. Separate blocks provide the whistles often attached to the tailfins to intimidate further those unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of these weapons.

 

 

The instructions provide colour call-outs, and advise to use RLM 71 for the bomb casing and fins. Colours are cross-referenced to the Gunze Aqueous and Mr Color paint ranges.

 

 

Painted and decaled, Brassins’s SC 50 bombs should be an excellent addition to any suitable model, and will be a vast improvement over any injected kit items. I have included images from Eduard’s website of the painted and decaled bombs below.

 

 


Conclusion

 

This set of four SC 50 bombs by Brassin is very nicely rendered. It offers a real opportunity to improve and refine the appearance of a wide range of suitable subjects. I definitely recommended them.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples and images.
