RRR72126 - 1/72 scale RAAF Meteor Mk.8 Napalm Warhead Rockets

 

This set consists of 8 x Napalm Warhead Rockets plus 8 x the associated wing racks, designed to detail the 1/72 MPM/Extrakit Meteor Mk.8 kits. The resin requires cutting from the pouring blocks (as is common), but unusually for Red Roo some flash is present on the mouldings which will need to be removed. Instruction sheets consist of 4 x A4 pages and are comprehensive giving multi view drawings and photos of the actual items with clear instructions on how to fit the parts to the model.

RRR72127 - 1/72 scale RAAF Meteor Mk.8 1000 lb Bomb Configuration

 

Similarly consisting of 2 x 1000 lb bombs (plus their associated racks which I missed scanning), along with 4 x 25lb warhead Rockets and their associated racks which are also carried in this configuration. The same comments about the quality of the Resin pieces and the need to remove a small amount of flash as per the review of RRR72126 above applies here also. Once again the instructions are 4 x A4 pages with detailed photos and drawings showing the correct fitment of these items.

Both sets are available from Red Roo Models:
