History

Chocks act as a safety device when placed under the wheels of a parked aircraft. This prevents the aircraft from rolling, especially when unattended or during an engine run-up.

Items in the Box

The units were resin cast material - white in color. One-page plans, good format.

Construction

The assembly is very basic. The cord or rope supplied looked large to me, so I used a thinner cord. (Thread: standard brown).

Finish and Detail

Used Floquil reefer yellow. I used black striping on one set of chocks. On the remaining two sets of chocks, I used the decals supplied on the instruction sheet.

Conclusion

With a slight modification, the units went together well. These units can be assembled by any inexperienced modeler. I wish to thank Profimodeller and IPMS for allowing me to review this kit.
