P-19 Truck, Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) 1:72 USAFline The Oshkosh P-19 ARFF has provided the back bone of airfield firefighting for US forces since the 1980's. It is a first response vehicle designed to rapidly respond to aircraft incidents and is a mandatory flight line operational vehicle for all bases which operate aircraft. It is only now being replaced by the Oshkosh P-19R. The Kit The kit arrives in a stout card box and is a mixed media kit of resin, white metal and photetch parts, along with clear strip for the glazing. The main body of the vehicle along with cab base, seat unit and rear fenders are in resin. The wheels, axles and nozzles. The main cab, rear grille and additional details are provided as photo-etch. The resin parts are crisp and free of bubbles and other defects. The white metal is well casts and the photo-etch is as good as it comes. Construction starts with assembly of the main resin body parts after removing the casting blocks. The left and right side panels attach to the main body, the roof panel is then attached. It is recommended that the cab interior be painted as the etch panels need decals applying before they are fitted. The acetate windows will then need to be cut to fit. The seats are fitted then the cab walls and front follow. The roof panel with the nozzle then finish the cab. The white mental axles, differentials and wheels can then be assembled, followed by the fenders. The rear grille is fitted along with the roof mounted klaxon, lights, pipes and air cleaner. The rear grab rails are fitted and the cab mirrors, the last items to be added are the ladders. Decals Decals are provided for eight machines; White 5 RAF Lakenheath. Unmarked - Creech AFB. White 9 - RAF Fairford. Red 3 - Grissom AFB. Red C-9 Niagra Falls ANGB. Dayglo 81 Bagram AB. Black 4 RAF Mildenhall. White 16 - RAF Fairford.
