Fix it WMF 32006 1/32 BL-755 Cluster Bombs
|Any appropriate 1/32 kit
Every once in a while I get a nice box from Wingman Models with some of their latest goodies. The first item from this most recent batch is this nice pair of BL-755 cluster bombs. The set includes complete bombs (something I appreciate as I cannot seem to ever get the separate body/fin sets properly aligned) along with photo etch arming spinners and three small nose caps. The spinners will need to have the blades tweaked once removed from the fret.
The set comes with a nice decal sheet which is pretty much white lettering and stripes. There is a full color instruction sheet that shows were all the markings are to be applied and this includes photos of the actual bombs. The bombs themselves measure a bit over 3 inches in length.
From what I have read, the BL-755 series was recently removed from service with the RAF and is currently being deleted from inventory by the German Air Force. It is still in use by India, Iran and Serbia. This means you can use it on Tornados, Jaguars and some Russian equipment as well as perhaps Iranian Phantoms.
