With the release of all the World War Two US aircraft in this scale, it didn't take long for aftermarket companies to step in and start producing detail sets. Profimodeller is one of these and they have come up with some really nice stuff. The wheel chock set is a nice addition and will work great when I display the new HK Models B-25 on a base.

I went to Profimodeller's website and found it quite easy to use. They are very helpful in answering questions and quick to respond (note the time difference, you are dealing with Czechoslovakia). I used Pay Pal for payment and received my goodies in a week.

This will be a "First Look" type review. I will be building a B-25 and incorporate the set in the build, but it's going to take a while.

The chocks are made of resin. You get enough pieces to build two sets of chocks. You get a bar, and the chocks are adjustable and slip on the bar. This set will really dress any WWII US airplane that they are used for.

The instruction sheet is in English and is very simple and easy to understand. No painting directions are given, so it's up to you to do your own research.

I would highly recommend this set - it's inexpensive and it should enhance an already detailed model kit. Many thanks go out to IPMS USA for giving me to opportunity to review this detail set and to Profimodeller for providing the detail set for us to review.
