Skunkmodels Workshop first came to our attention with their nice 1/32 conformal fuel tank set for the Tamiya 1/32 F-16 Fighting Falcon. They have returned with this interesting kit and they are carried by the nice folks at LuckyModel.com.
There you are with a nice USAF (or NATO) F-16 and while you want to show off the detailed empty missile rails, you also want to show off your detailed missiles with the variety of weapons sets and decals now available. Skunkworks to the rescue.
This new release provides two complete current-issue weapons carts that can be used for a variety of air-to-air and air-to-ground stores. These would look great loaded up and parked next to your aircraft. Each cart is presnted on two parts trees, and two complete carts are included in the box.
There are three additional trees to this kit, each containing a figure. All three figures are posed cradling a weapon (usually a Sidewinder) as it takes three to mount one. Two male and one female figure are included.
Whether you want to put something relevant around your F-15, F-16, F-22, or other contemporary NATO fighter, this set will provide a nice additional detail for your scale flightline.
