First Look

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 upgrade for the AMT/ERTL 1/48 S-3A or ES-3A kits. Simply replace the kit parts with these new intakes.

S-3 Viking Seamless Intakes

Looking down the throat of this scale TF-34 engine, the parts have nice detailing cast into the fan. You'll note that the left engine in the photo is slightly out of round. If you get resin parts that have slightly warped, and it happens, simply insert the part into some warm water and when the resin gets soft, carefully readust the intake back to round. The result is a nice pair of engine intakes/compressor faces with no seams.

If there is a quarter-scale Hoover in your future, you might consider this nice enhancement. Recommended!

My sincere thanks to John's Models for this review sample!
