FirstLook

 

Designed for Brengun's own 1/144 scale kit of this aircraft, this accessory pack comes in clear resealable sleeve and provides two sets of resin replacement wheels, a bomb body and a replacement engine along with a very detailed photo-etched fret.

The wheels include tread and are of the disc-faced type.

 

 

The photo-etched fret is a 60x40mm sheet providing multi-part flaps and dive brakes, undercarriage details, bomb fins, bomb rack, an ignition wiring loom for the engine (!) and various small fitments.

A small clear film and photo-etched frame provide for the viewing window between the undercarriage wells.

 

 

The instructions give very clear construction and attachment drawings, including drawings of what areas need to be cut in order to fit the parts.

 

 

Conclusion

 

Amazing stuff for modellers in this scale and with much better eyes than mine.

Thanks to Brengun for the review samples.
