  1. US Navy Aero 12C Cart with Ordnanceman & Mk.82 (181148) 1:48 VideoAviation The Aero 12C bomb handling cart is a wheelbarrow-style frame that has two rubber tyres that allow the manoeuvring of munitions on-deck by a single crew-member, or Ornanceman. One or two bombs are strapped in place and pushed/pulled by the one or two handles that distance the crewman far enough away from the centre of balance to make the task easy (enough). There are adapters available to carry other shapes of munitions, but in its basic form it can be used directly with the Mk.82 bomb, which is a standard 500lb bomb in use with the US Navy sometimes fitted with a fire-retarding ablative coating, and can be fitted with various head and tail units to suit the task in hand. This set arrives in a clear clamshell box with the parts bagged for their protection in ziplok bags, a small instruction sheet and a front card with the product details and a shot of the finished model for reference. It contains a single-handled cart, broken down into the sled, two wheels, two stays and one handle, plus two bombs that are made up from the front body (without ablative coating), and the high-drag fin portion. In addition, you get a single crewman, dressed appropriately for modern deck-crew, with goggles down and his bone dome with integrated comms and ear protection. He is in a pitched forward pushing position, with one hand on the handle, the other supporting the bomb's fin unit, and a man-bag at his hip. The spare bomb can be set in the cart, used as part of a diorama on the deck or already fitted to the waiting aircraft. The ordnanceman is shown on the instructions from two angles, with arrows pointing out the colours of his uniform and equipment, which should be a great help if you're not familiar with them. Conclusion More great accessories from VideoAviation, who don't seem to be able to make a dud (accidental bomb pun - sorry!). The figure is well-sculpted, the model detailed as per the real-deal, and the inclusion of not one, but two bombs is good to see. If you wanted to depict them with the ablative coating, just stipple a little putty onto the body for effect. Also available in 1:32 here, if you like 'em larger. Very highly recommended.

  2. US Mk-84 Bombs 1:32 Brassin (632-075) - If you’ve fancied some heavier ordinance on you finished models, then you can’t get much heavier that the Mk-84, (at least in the 80 series of bombs). Arriving in the pretty standard blister pack the set has parts for two complete bombs. The casting is up to the usual standard, with some very fine details, such as the bomb lugs moulded onto the bomb casing. Assembly is nice and simple, as once the fins and bodies are removed from the casting blocks and cleaned up it’s just a matter of joining them together, then deciding what fuse type you’re going to fit. Fortunately Eduard provide three of each, as one of the fuse extenders is a little warped, but the other two are fine. There are two types of nose fuse, one short and one on a fuse extender, there is also the option of just having a plain nose cap for an un-armed weapon. Then it’s just a matter of adding the etched brass tail ring, painting, (any colour as long as it’s olive drab it seems), adding the supplied decals, and weathering as required. Conclusion As is becoming the norm for Brassin these bombs are really well manufactured. Great moulding, good attention to detail and an excellent addition to any modellers armoury. Highly recommended Review sample courtesy of
  3. SC 250 German WWII bombs 1:72 Eduard Brassin The SC250 or Sprengbombe Cylindrisch 250 was a German all purpose high explosive bomb. The bombs weight was 250 Kgs from which the designation refers to. Explosive content was normally 130 kgs of a TNT and amatol mix. The bombs from Eduard in their Brassin range features the bomb in resin, with the details in resin and proto etch. A small sheet of decals provides all the markings. Conclusion This should enhance any model of an aircraft which carries these bombs. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of

    British 500lb armour piercing- bombs

    The Vickers Vildebeests that took part in the first attack at Endau carried 3 number 500lb armour-piercing bombs each, according to Christopher Shores in Bloody Shambles Volume 2. I cannot find any details of these bombs, I need 3 for my 1/72 scale Vildebeest. I am happy to buy or adapt 500lb GP bombs, just need a supplier or details. Help please.

    Tu-16K cockpit and bomb bay references?

    Good evening everyone, I picked up a Trumpeter 1:72 Tu16k-10 (Badger C) recently and I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of the badger's bomb bay or cockpit. Preferably, I would like to know about colours- what colours should I use for the cockpit interior and the bomb bay interior? I'm planning on fitting it with the AS6 Kingfish missiles on the wing mounting points, with a variety of bombs inside the bomb bay- was this a typical loadout or was the aircraft purely fitted with anti-shipping missiles? Many thanks, Sam
  6. M117 bombs(Late) 1:72 Eduard Brassin The M117 was the standard bomb of the USAF from the 1950's through the 1970s and beyond. This version from Eduard is the early one and should be good for any aircraft from Korea through Vietnam. The casting of the six bombs is first rate with options for different fuses including extended ones in the pack. To preserve the casting of both ends the two parts must be joined in the middle. A small sheet of decals for bomb markings is included. Review sample courtesy of
  7. Mk.82 Bombs 1:72 Eduard Brassin The Mark 82 is a US general-purpose bomb, it is part of the Mark 80 series of weapons with a nominal weight of 500Lbs. Actual weight varying with fuse options. It is a conventional steel cased bomb filled with 192 lbs of Tritonal high explosive. The weapon was first used in Vietnam and has been used ever since. These weapons have now been given guidance packages in the form of first the Pave Way, and later the JDAM additions. The bomb bodies are supplied as one part cast resin. Different fused noses, including the log "Daisy cutter" are included in resin. The last item in this package is the inclusion of bomb markings on the small decal sheet. Conclusion Quality ordnance can always enhance the look of a model. With such a wide range of potential applications, I'm sure they will sell like hot cakes too. Recommended.

  8. M117 bombs(early) 1:72 Eduard The M117 was the standard bomb of the USAF from the 1950's through the 1970s and beyond.

The casting of the six bombs is first rate with options for different fuses including extended ones in the pack. To preserve the casting of both ends the two parts must be joined in the middle.

  9. Mk.84 Bombs 1:72 Eduard Brassin The Mark 84 or BLU-117 is an US general-purpose bomb, it is also the largest of the Mark 80 series of weapons with a nominal weight of 2000Lbs. Actual weight varying with fuse options. It is a conventional steel cased bomb filled with 945 lbs of Tritonal high explosive. The weapon was first used in Vietnam and has been used ever since. These weapons have now been given guidance packages in the form of first the Pave Way, and later the JDAM additions. The bomb bodies are supplied as one part cast resin. There is also a rear part supplied in PE. Different fused noses, including the log "Daisy cutter" are included in resin. It is good Eduard have included 3 each of these as you are bound to loose one to the carpet monster at some point! The last item in this package is the inclusion of bomb markings on the small decal sheet. Conclusion Quality ordnance can always enhance the look of a model. With such a wide range of potential applications, I'm sure they will sell like hot cakes too. Recommended. Review samples courtesy of
  10. US 250lb Bombs 1:32 Brassin This set of two US 250lb M-57 bombs from Brassin are pretty much scaled up versions of the 1:48 set reviewed HERE. Due to the increase in size these bombs there is a little extra detail provided. The casting is just as well done, with some very fine details, such as the bomb lugs, with both US and British styles, (one or two lugs), moulded onto the bomb casing. Assembly is nice and simple, as once removed from the casting blocks and cleaned up it’s just a matter of fitting the etched “wire” into the rear of the casing, attaching the rear arming vane, sliding the box tail into place and attaching the front arming vane. Then it’s just a matter of painting, adding the supplied decals, and weathering. Since they were introduced in 1943 and weren’t removed from the weapons list until the 1960’s they can be used on virtually any WWII/Korean/Vietnam War aircraft, although with something like a Skyraider you will need to purchase quite a few two bomb sets. Conclusion As is becoming the norm for Brassin these bombs are really well manufactured. Great moulding, good attention to detail and since they were so widely used, they will make an excellent addition to any modellers armoury. Highly recommended Review sample courtesy of
  11. Hi All, Since Airfix will be bringing us some new tool Blenheim aircraft kits, a few pictures that show the bombs as carried plus the bomb bays of various Finnish Blenheim variants may be of interest. Since I am putting up a lot of pictures I decided not to flood Mark Haselden's thread on the Airfix Blenheim with them. All of the 62 images which will follow below are sourced from the SA-Kuva website. To date I have examined around 144,450 images from SA-Kuva and have downloaded 4703 images of interest which include 3122 aviation pictures. Fortunately I am most of the way through what SA-Kuva has online. Anyway here are some pictures; More to follow, over....
  12. Il-2 Weapons Set 1:48 Eduard Brassin (648073) Tamiya's new wünderkit contains a number of munitions carried by the Shturmovik, but this set adds two more to the armoury, in the shape of a pair of each of the smaller FAB 50 and RS 132 bombs. The FAB 50 is simply a small 50kg bomb, which have atypical (for Russian bombs) traditional fins without the ring aerofoil at the rear. The RS 132 is a small anti-personnel unguided rocket that entered service with the Soviet airforce in 1940, and although it had poor accuracy, when enough were launched in a salvo some were bound to hit their targets. The front of the casing was ridged in a similar way as a WWII hand grenade to create shrapnel that would increase the potential of damage to personnel or equipment over an area with a diameter of 20m. The kit includes some rockets that are designated as RS-132 in the instructions, but they are actually the RS-82s, which don't have the grooves down the nose. The set arrives in Eduard's clamshell boxing, and includes four of each bomb/rocket, paired on casting blocks. Casting is of course excellent, with crisp detail throughout, and the casting blocks sensibly placed at the rear of the weapons. The RS-132 rockets look like they could be a little tricky to liberate from their blocks, as they have fins that extend well past the body of the rocket. In practice however, they are simple to remove first with a saw, then apply a little finger pressure to the conical stub that attaches to the centre of the rocket. That will snap clear and you can then clean up the rear and the fins with a sharp blade. It takes a couple of minutes to do one rocket, so it's not too onerous in exchange for having no seams to clean up along the rocket bodies. The bombs are just as easy to clean up, requiring only careful use of a razor saw to liberate them. There are some unexplained seams running up the rear of the bombs though, but they succumb to the edge of a blade quickly and easily, so aren't really a problem. Conclusion A handy update to the Tamiya (or Accurate Miniatures) kit, and something a little out of the ordinary that will set your model apart from the standard weapons supplied with the kit.
