Brass kit


For those of you who are new to Shelf Oddity, it is a company hout of Poland that specializes in 1/144 aircraft and 1/700 ship detail sets. As many of us know, there is a limit to the sort of detail one can provide in these scales when it comes to standard injected plastic. It is here that the use of etched brass can make a big difference.

This set is a pair of brass AGM-75 Maverick air to ground missiles in 1/144 scale. Each missile is a bit under 16mm in length and consists of a solid brass body with etched fins, and some of these are seriously small. I am pleased to see some extras included. The large bits on the left are the sections where the missile attaches to the pylon.  You'll notice in the image that there is panel line detail in the body as well as the attachment indentations. Included with each set is a guide to assist in getting the fins properly square. A set of stencil decals is also included. As seems to be popular, the instructions for the set are on-line and one simply downloads a .pdf file for this purpose. Included are not only decal placement, but a considerable number of color options as well.  

For those really into 1/144 scale aircraft, this is a set you seriously need to consider.
