L'Arsenal has produced a nicely detailed and cast
aircraft accessory in 1/48 scale.
This particular set is for a item of ground support equipment know as a
waste fuel dolly or tank. It is used to store the last bit of fuel left
in the aircraft main fuel tanks. The castings are very crisp with some
very fine detail captured.
There are 13 parts that make up this kit. The parts have some minor
moulding flash and once removed from the casting blocks, cleaned up and
painted the details should look very realistic. These are up there with
some of the best resin detail parts that I have seen.
The only issue that I can see with these detail sets is
that all text on the instruction sheets is in French so you will need
your French translator to be handy. My French is not good, so I have
translated the best I can using my French dictionary.
Due to the easy nature of cleanup and fitting I
recommend these for all experience levels of modellers.
Thanks to L'Arsenal for the review sample
