  1. Cold War Starter Set - MD3 Generator & MA-1 Start Cart (208832) 1:32 VideoAviation.com I must say when you see the words "Starter Set" in modelling this is not what springs to mind. his is a new set from VideoAviation which provides aircraft starting sets. The MA-1A gives high pressure air which is fed directly in via the hoses to spool up an aircraft engine. This is provided by a small turbine engine mounted on the cart. The MD3 generator set is a ground power unit. It was designed to provide 28-volt DC 1500 amp, 115/220-volt AC three-phase electrical power for B-47 aircraft for ground operation and start. It also can be used with other aircraft that have power requirements compatible with its output. It uses a Continental 180-hp six-cylinder reciprocating engine to generate the power. Both would be often seen on the cold war USA airfield, originally in bright yellow before later being painted green. Both units arrive in the same white box from VideoAviation. The MD3 There is one main solid resin part for the body of the generator with additional resin parts, and a cable provided as well. A good sized decal sheet provides all the markings needed. The MA-1A There is one main solid resin part for the starter with all additional parts in resin. There is a smallish decal sheet provides all the markings. As the air hoses are provided in resin when heated in hot water the modeller will be able o bend them to what ever shape is required. Conclusion If you're placing any of your models on a base, adding ancillary equipment is a great way of enhancing realism. Once again the quality of casting in these sets from VideoAviation is superb. Very Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  2. US A/M32A-60 Generator Videoaviation 1:32 The latest 1:32 release from Videoaviation is of a A/M32A-60 Generator set. The set comes in a sturdy cardboard box with a picture of the unit in side view. Inside there is quite a lot of cream coloured resin contained in either bubblewrap or ziplock bags. The mouldings are very nicely produced with very little flash and minimal webbing/attachments connecting the parts to the moulding blocks. There are twenty two parts all told, not including all the pipework which is included as uncut lengths. Construction begins with the fitting of the upper body to the lower bed. The two separate axles are fitted to the pre-moulded leaf spring suspension mounts; the front axle also has the towing beam attachment point fitted. The four wheels, which consist of separate tyres and hubs, to aid painting, are then attached, along with the rear bumper bar, optionally posed side door. The towing arm can be posed in either folded or extended position, and there are four hose storage supports and the hose pipe fitted to the roof. The different sized cables are each fitted with plugs, before being coiled up and placed in the brackets on the roof. The air pipe is also coiled up, with one end glued to the outlet pipe, and then also mounted on the roof. Of course, you can also use the cables and air pipe in a diorama setting attached to your particular aircraft. Decals are included for all the stencils and warning signs/markings for the unit, unfortunately none are provided for the gauges. The modeller can paint this unit in three different colours depending on where they’re used, Yellow, Green or Grey. Conclusion This is another great little kit from Videoaviation. Not too difficult to build, but could be fun to weather it a bit, not too much mind, and will make a super addition to any diorama next to and possibly attached to a suitable aircraft.
