|KIT:||ICM 1/72 Soviet Modern Air Armament|
|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken|
This particular set is for three major missile types that are applicable for modern Russian aircraft such as the Su-27, MiG-29 and others that have been in the inventory over the last 15 years or so.
Basically, you get a sprue with two each of three different missile types. There is the R-77 air to air missile, the X-29T air to surface missile and the X-31P air to surface missile. In addition, there is a pylon provided for each one in case your model does not provide one. Each missile is quite simple to construct. Only the X-31P has more than two parts to it.
The molding of the missiles is good with engraved or raised detail as needed. There is a tad bit of flash on some of the thinner bits, but no sink marks as one often finds on aircraft pylons.
Instructions are quite basic as little is needed for these. There is a color guide on the back of the small sheet that provides Model Master and generic colors. This is repeated in full color on the back of the box.
I have found sets like this to be most helpful when doing modern jets. Especially if they don't come with the weapons you want.
