This is Brengun has released 1/72 US 300gal Fuel Tank mainly used on US Navy aircraft. These were commonly used on A-6 Intruders, AV-8B Harriers, A-7 Corsairs, A-1 Akyraider and S-3 Vikings to name a few.
In the box is:
- 4 x light grey resin main body of the fuel tank
- 3 x light grey resin tail unit
- 1 photoetch sheet of the tail fins
- 1 light grey resin mounting part
- 1 instruction sheet
In the review copy the resin mounting parts were missing and I have two Photo etch sheets rather than one. The kits still build nicely without the mounting parts.
The resin is well molded with very little flash and are well detailed. The resin parts are to allow you to make the four versions of the fuel tank used on the aircraft.
First is the removal of the parts from Resin. You should be careful removing the main fuel tank as these are easy to damage.
The next stage deciding which versions you are going to build, I did three different versions for the review.
The build is very easy and simple. The only thing to be aware of is the PE tail fins tabs are too big for the slots in the resin mating part. So, you will need to file them down.
These are very nice fuel tanks, simple and fun to build. I will be installing these on one of my future 1/72 builds.
Thanks go to Hauler/Brengun for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
