Brengun brings us an improved version of the metal 75 gallon drop tanks used on all types of US fighter aircraft during WWII. You get two tanks cast in resin, a PE fret with caps and a small decal sheet with labels and stencils for the tanks. Casting blocks are attached to front of each part and come off easily. A little touch up was required since the attachment points from the blocks left minor dimples and there were a few pin holes to fill. I painted the tanks aluminum per the directions. The PE caps fit the provided recesses just right. Decaling proved easy as they went down with micro set. The only gripe here is the stencil blocks are just colored stripes without writing on them.

Compared to the tank from the Airfix Mustang kit, the details are much sharper. The Brengun part has the lip where the halves were pinch welded together. There are also holes for the fuel line plumbing from the aircraft wings. This set is a nice upgrade for almost any 1/72 scale US fighter model.
