PlusModel was established in 1990 in the Czech Republic. Their product range is primarily made up of 1/35th scale resin kits, conversion sets, and accessories which are vacuum cast from polyurethane resin. Their products may be purchased online through www.modelchoice.net.

A new addition to their line is a set of resin FFAR Rockets for any 1/72 Hawker Hurricane kit. The rocket assembly is a two-piece assembly of individual rockets and launch rails which, when assembled, attach to the supplied mounting plate, or to the kits' underwing mounting points if appropriate.

The pictorial PlusModel instructions are straight forward. Remove the parts from their resin sprues. Use care with the rocket fins, as they are fragile. Clean up any flash or casting seam lines. I suggest painting before assembly. Once painted to match your references, use CA glue to attach the rockets to the rails. There is a groove on the underside to assist you in lining things up. When set, glue to the supplied plate, or or to the underside of the kit wing.

This is an excellent and easily installed FFAR set that will enhance the realism of your 1/72 Hawker Hurricane. Very highly recommended.
