Kinetic is one of the few model companies that regularly release airside vehicles and airfield / carrier bases.
Their latest release is a generous package of no less than five deck vehicles, four weapons carts plus three crew figures.
Kinetic's new 1/48 scale US Navy Carrier Deck Vehicle Set comprises the following:
A/S32A-32 Hangar Tractor
MD-3 Long / Short Deck Tractor
NC-2A EPU Mobile Electric Power Plant
STT (Shipboard Tow Tractor)
4 x Weapons Carts
3 x US Navy Deck Crew Figures.
Moulding quality is high and detail is good.
Towbars, accessories and various optional configurations, including different extended tails for the MD-3, are included.
Each vehicle is made up from a minimum of parts and should be easy to assemble.
A photo-etched fret is supplied for detailing the bomb / missile trailers.
The figures are moulded with helmets and lowered visors.
This will suit modellers who don't like painting faces!
Decals are provided for all of the vehicles including instrument panels and unique markings.
Markings are also supplied for the figures.
The artwork is designed by Fightertown Decals and printed perfectly by Cartograf.
Instructions are supplied in a 12 page booklet. Four-view illustrations of all marking schemes are included.
