The Mk. 84 general purpose bomb is a 2000 Lb. weapon which can be configured with different fins and fuses depending on its mission at the time. In this iteration, Eduard has provided a Mk. 84 with retarded fins, I believe based on the BSU-50/B parts to allow lower release and the plane to escape the blast radius.

Eduard’s set comes with two main bomb bodies, three styles of fuses, a photoetch fret with two pieces, decals, and instructions. Construction is simple- take your time and cut the main body away from the pour stub being careful of the rear fins. Sand smooth and add the photoetch to the rear. After that, all that is needed is to select the fuse type. The fuse can actually be added after the painting.

Color is simple with olive drab being the main choice. The decals are well done and settle very well. A little wash to accentuate the well molded details followed by a flat coat and done.

Well detailed and accurate, this is a bomb I don’t see in too many places. It builds easily and definitely is recommended. My thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for the chance to review this great set.
