Terry Dean 1/48 B-29 Andy Gump Cowlings
PRICE: $25.00 MSRP
FOR: Revell-Monogram 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Resin

Used on only a handful of B-29s and on the YC-97s, Boeing made a set of engine cowlings where the oil cooler intakes were set far back on the cowling and were considerably larger than on the standard cowlings. These were called 'Andy Gump' cowlings after a growth disease that causes a severely regressed chin.

With so few airframes actually using these cowlings, these are on special order from Terry Dean. They are very well done. My samples were free of air bubbles or voids and had very little flash as well. These are direct replacements for the kit parts and if you are so inclined to do a B-29 or YC-97 that is different from the run of the mill, then you may well want to consider this set.

These are, of course, for the Revell-Monogram 1/48 kit.

Contact Terry at NightieMission@aol.com to order. My thanks to Terry for sending these in for review.
