Nose Weights


1/48 Aircraft

NOTE: New Price List

One of the biggest problems for some model kits is nose weight. Either you can't find a good place to put it, or you spend a lot of time stuffing it into various nooks and crannies of your kit. There are even times when you think you have enough and end up with a tail-sitter.

Terry Dean has just produced a second batch of weights for us.  Most of the cast weights are for Monogram kits and in many cases are such a tight fit that no gluing is needed. All sets are in 1/48 scale, though Terry is considering doing these for 1/72 as well. Below are images of what is new in this second batch. A price list and how the parts fit is shown below the image.

All prices include shipping, which is a real bargain nowadays. To order write to Terry Dean, 3407 Summers Lane, Klamath Falls, OR 97603. You can also e-mail Terry at

These are really very reasonably priced and well worth the money, especially those for the large bombers. I highly recommend supporting Terry in his endeavors as he does a great job on these weights.
