Advanced Modeling 48025: RBK-500 PTAB-1 500kg Cluster Bomb






Any Appropriate 1/48 Soviet Aircraft


Scott Van Aken

Continuing with the Russian stores, this set is also a pair of cluster bombs that looks similar to the earlier set but is of a more aerodynamic shape. The RBK-500 PTAB-1 bomb comes in two pieces; a forward section and the aft portion that includes the fins. The casting on these bits is flawless and among the best castings I have ever seen. There are no instructions aside from the usual warnings concerning resin and a stats table on the bomb itself.

The bomb is suitable for a wide range of Russian jets from the Su-17 to the Yak-130. Very much worth the effort of seeking out.
