Does anyone know the dimensions of the Type 1 Universal bomb rack as fitted to the Fairey Battle? Or better still, was it the same rack as fitted to other types that are available in PE?

 

Thanks,

Its a universal carrier, its something not particular to one type of aircraft. The same item  was used an all other RAF aircraft of the period, which is what I assumed you were asking as you did not specify a scale. 

You can find them in other kits, in   White metal  for 1/72 and are probably available as a PE component as part of a update set for other aircraft types.

Thanks Selwyn.

I'm aware that it is the same as used on other types, I just want to know if it's available in PE, maybe listed as a part for a different aircraft, and if so, which one.

Yes, thanks guys. I've gone overboard and ordered both the Red Roo cast brass and the Marabu PE and will probably end up using bits of each, plus some additions. Yes, it's 1:72, for my ongoing Airfix Battle build here.

Thanks for the pointers!
