Norden Bombsight 1:32 Robert Mrozowski Model & Design Modeller Robert Mrozowski set about fabricating an accurate bomb sight for his HK Model B-17 Flying Fortress, which turned into a mammoth two year project of research, learning, design and a search for fabrication facilities. The end result is a highly accurate resin replica that would look great in the nose of your Fortress. The set arrives in a ziplok bag with a black backing card and a header card stapled to the top, which also contains the instructions in colour. There are six resin parts and two in clear acrylic sheet Construction is straight-forward once the parts are removed from their moulding block, with the main part needing very careful removal to leave you with a 2mm cylindrical stub at the bottom of the part. This is detailed at length by a series of three 3D drawings showing the correct way to remove it, and the end result. The instructions suggest slow-setting CA for attachment of the resin parts to allow sufficient time for fine tuning the arrangement, and also recommends the use of PVA glue for the attachment of the clear acetate disc that is also supplied in a small ziplok bag within the main one, along with a spare in case you mislay one. Painting is important to obtain a life-like finish, and you are recommended to visit two web pages to obtain details, but these links are quite long-winded to type, with strings of numbers providing plenty of opportunity for typos. To help you out, here they both are in a short, clickable format. That said, I only managed to screw up one of the links when typing them in, so perhaps it's not sure a chore afterall! Link 1 Link 2 From looking at the pictures in the links above, you will be able to gather just how accurate the model is when comparing it to the photos of the real thing. Conclusion This is Robert's first commercial aftermarket product, but if this is well-received others may follow, although we believe that the alternative mount for the newly released E/F Fort will be forthcoming soon. We wish him luck! Highly recommended. Available from Hannants in the UK Review sample courtesy of [img= http://www.britmodeller.com/reviews/robertmrozowski/logo.gif]
