The Wild Weasels flew specialized missions in Vietnam using first the F-100, F-105 and finally the F-4 to take out SAM targets. Their exploits are stuff of legend. One of the things that made them so effective was the Shrike anti-radiation missile. The missile was used all the way up to Desert Storm by F-4Gs.

Molded in light and dark grey resin, you are provided with four missiles. My examples were perfectly formed and no blemishes noticed. The best thing about these resin pieces is that there are no mold lines and they are perfectly round. Included in the set is a fret of photo etch for the exhaust nozzles. Decals round out the missiles. These are perfectly formed. The instructions are simple enough with the color call out and the decal placement easy enough to understand.

Construction is pretty straight forward. The detail on the missiles is impressive to say the least.

The inclusion of the missiles on your Wild Weasel will add dramatically to the look of them. The Shrike is not a small missile.

Highly recommended
