Brengun continues to expand its line of accessories this time with a resin set for the air-to-air refueling system known as the “Buddy Tank”. This set represent the “Buddy Tank” used in A-1, A-4, A-6, A-7, and S-3 airplanes. Given that some of those airplanes were exported, this ordinance was also exported to many countries.

This set is cast in grey resin, free of bubbles and surface imperfections. There are a total of 12 parts, some of which are small and delicate.

The cast plugs are of reasonable size and the attachment points are minuscule for all the small parts, only the two larger part (which represent the fuel tank) have medium to large attachment points.

Cleaver design of the molds means that even with medium to large attachment points to the parts, minimal work will be needed as either the area with the attachment point will be hidden from view or the attachment point is in an area void of detail, meaning that having to lightly sand off any residue won’t remove any surface detail. Well done Brengun!


I would like to thank Brengun and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
