True Details 1/48 250 lb US Bombs


TD 48502




Any appropriate 1/48 kit


Scott Van Aken

This is a nice set for those modeling WWII or Korean War aircraft. This style of bomb was very commonly used on fighter bombers as well as standard bomber/attack aircraft. Most kits provide the larger 500lb bomb, but those were not always carried as the increased weight often meant shorter range. For longer range missions or where a 500lb GP bomb wasn't really needed, the 250 lb version did quite nicely.

This set includes two bombs on the standard resin pour stub. Once the parts are removed, they are easily assembled and ready for paint. Worth looking for if you need these smaller bombs.
