Advanced Modeling 48074: KAB-500Kr 500kg TV Guided Bomb


AMC 48074




Any Appropriate 1/48 Russian Aircraft


Scott Van Aken

This next neat offering of 'things under wings' from Advanced Modeling is a pair of KAB-500Kr 500kg television guided bombs. These bombs are suitable for a number of Russian aircraft such as the MiG-27K, MiG-29SMT, Su-24M, SU-25TM/SM, Su-30MKL/MKK, and the Su-34.

There are two bombs in the set and they consist of the main bodies with fins, a nose section and the clear section for the seeker head. Not shown is a photo etch end cap for the bombs. There is a complete decal sheet included in the set. Instructions not only show how to put the bombs together, but offer painting information as well as full decal placement.

I have included a photo of one of these bombs. Note that they could also be overall darker grey. The red bits are covers designed to protect parts of the bomb from damage.
