In the past few months ICM has been producing some long sought after kits, as well as some unexpected, such as the WWII German Torpedo with Trailer. This kit would be ideal for those who want some extra diorama detail for a German maritime bomber or just a nice simple stand alone kit.
The kit consists of about 22 highly detailed injected parts. The assembly is pretty basic. The tubular frame of the trailer itself is reproduced in extremely fine detail and I cannot reiterate enough, but take extra care and patience in separating these from the parts tree as well as clean up. No thanks to my own fault, some of the pieces were broken in removing them. One piece I completely lost was a curved piece of the frame and I had to resort to good ol stretched sprue to fabricate the part that I lost. Overall it took about an hour for cleanup and assembly. I then made wheel masks with a hole punch for the wheels and then painted the trailer and wheels. The torpedo was painted with AK Extreme Matt Aluminum and Model Master Gun Metal and then washed with Tamiya black wash.
Overall it was a decent kit and would make a great add on to any Luftwaffe diorama. I want to tank ICM for providing the kit for review.
