Sometimes when you are building a diorama there is that one thing that will set yours apart from the rest. This is one of those items.

Aerobonus has provided unique pieces for the aircraft diorama buffs in the past and these little gems are just what the doctor ordered.

On airfields, regardless of eras, there are always fire extinguishers. They are in the background but always around the engine, just in case of engine fire. Aerobonus provides you with four fire extinguishers cast in blemish free grey resin. The resin encompasses the cylinder, the horn and extinguisher handle. You will have to supply the wire to make the hose. That alone would be quite nice but that's not all, Aerobonus also provides you with decals to make your individual fire extinguishers. While the item description says US Navy, I've seen these fire extinguisher used by the USAAF and foreign airfields.

These would look good on any diorama. Treat yourself to something a little different. These fire extinguishers are simple and effective additions.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Aires and IPMS/USA for the review item. You can obtain yours by contacting Aires at or your local hobby shop or online retailer.
