AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Antarki Models #ATK 48R004
Expal BRP-250 Bombs (Argentina - Maldives)
1:48 Scale

 

The Expal BRP-250 is an unguided air-to-ground bomb employed by a number of smaller air forces around the world such as Spain and Argentina, and has been cleared to fly on a wide variety of attack jets such as the A-4 Skyhawk, Mirage 5, Mirage F.1, and the Super Etendard.  Argentina also used these munitions in the 1982 Falklands War.  

Antarki Models from Peru has released a pair of 1:48 scale resin and photoetch metal BRP-250s.  The bombs are very well cast.  They feature very fine surface detail, recessed joint lines where the bomb body meets the fusing section and the tailfin assembly, and a nicely detailed fuse.  The fins are appropriately thin in 1:48 scale as they are provided as photoetch metal parts.

This is a very nice set of a thoroughly underrepresented munition in 1:48 scale.  The only real critique that I can entertain is that there is no painting or markings guide included.  The scale modeler will have to do a little research on this front, but of course, research a one of the best parts of scale modeling!      

Many thanks to Amaru Tincopa and Antarki Models for the review sample.  You can follow them on Facebook, and see their plans for new decals and kits at: https://www.facebook.com/Antarki-Model-Kits-Per%C3%BA-134774536570515/ .  You can place orders at antarkimodels@gmail.com.
