REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Resin

Now moving to some more standard weapons, Spectre Resins releases their first set from the family of the most widely used cluster weapons yet developed. Though highly effective when used in Vietnam, by the time of the 1991 Gulf War, the type had become unreliable and was shortly retired from use. There are a myriad of aircraft, both US and with other nations that used variants of this weapon. You would find this on German Alpha Jets, Greek A-7s and Israeli F-16s for example. For those of you wondering what the difference is between this and set #1, it is that the earlier set has 'tipped' fins while these are clean.

Molding on this one is nicely done with separate fins that will slot into grooves in the aft body section. Once the mold seam is cleaned up and the fins attached it will be ready for paint and installation.
