I met up with the new owner of CAM resin details at the 2006 IPMS/USA National Convention and not only is he reissuing the existing CAM detail line, he's already releasing new subjects as well.
This set is a rather simple modification for virtually any 1/48 Fw 190A-8 kit. This set provides a pair of slipper tanks to provide a low-drag range extension for the parasite fighters that were mounted atop long range maritime patrol aircraft Mistel-style..
Simply file away the molding stubs and cyano these onto the trailing edges of the wings of your advanced long-range fighter. If you want to see what this looks like, check out my 1/72 build of the parasite fighter and its mother ship.
If there is a quarter-scale Fw 190A-7/8 in your future, you might consider this essential enhancement. Recommended!
My sincere thanks to John's Models for this review sample!
