Hauler-Brengun is well known as a supplier of high-quality aftermarket detail parts for aircraft, as well as other subjects. Many of these aftermarket items are resin, P.E., or a combination of the two mediums. In this "inbox" review, we will look at the quality of the parts, decals, and P.E. parts as well as the packaging and kit instructions.

Marketed under the "Brengun" label, this review looks at the Brengun BRL32037 AGM-114 Hellfire Missile. There are 8 Hellfires in this product including PE parts and decals for those eight missiles. The missiles are packaged in a small zip-lock baggie, as is the single sheet of P.E. parts. The kit instructions, printed on a small sheet of paper, and the decals are boxed underneath the missile parts. The sturdy cardboard box is about 3 inches by 3 inches and about 3/4 inch deep.

There was no flash or molding errors on the resin parts in this review set. The P.E. parts are of the usual high standard that one expects from Brengun. The one problem that the modeler will face will be to remove some of the small parts from the part "bar" upon which they are molded without those parts becoming fodder for the carpet monster. A set of nippers with fine blades, or a razor saw with fine teeth will be of use. Some touch-up sanding will be required after the part is removed from the part bar. The same is true of the P.E. parts. The parts are well fashioned and, like the resin parts, are rather small, so caution is required in removal and prep for assembly.

The decal sheet shows no issues with proper alignment of the various colors that appear on some of the stencil decals. Again, some of the decals are quite small so care must be the word of the day.

The instructions are clear and easy to interpret. If required, the instruction sheet can be scanned and enlarged to make it easier to view. Or just shoot a picture of the sheet with your mobile device and enlarge the image on your screen.

This product is highly recommended. Brengun has provided the modeler with a excellent product, with superb detail, with clear instructions and excellent decals, that will add to the authenticity of the aircraft model "packin' the hardware". Thanks to Brengun for providing this sample to IPMS for review.
