Underwing armament such as bombs are always nice to add to your model. With the plethora of new Russian aircraft models, the abilities to bomb them up has never been better. The GPS guided bombs are quite well known in the West but the Russian equivalents are not as well known. Advanced Modeling has stepped up to plate with their impressive 3D CAD developed products.

The packaging is a self-sealing bag that contains the parts for two KAB-500S Satellite Bombs . There is a small decal sheet for the bombs. Also included are two end caps in photo etch.

The instructions are beautifully printed and attached to card stock packaging. They are written in Russian and English. The drawings are simply beautiful and extremely accurate. The one sheet shows where the decals go.

All the resin parts are in light grey resin with no blemishes or bubbles anywhere. The bomb bodies are separate from the warheads. The instructions show where to cut off the resin pour stubs.

The set includes a small decal sheet. The decals are very small but the instructions shows where they all go. There are a lot of decals. This is going to be more than a one night of decaling.

The level of detail on these bombs is impressive to say the least. Advanced Modeling is producing some of the best Russian armament systems in a variety of scales. Their attention to detail is impeccable. I'd have to say that AM is the best on the market in any scale. This set is another winner.

Highly recommended
