AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Bone Fragments B-1B Sniper Pylon -- 1:48 Scale

vol_2_image

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the B-1B bomber was adapting to the non-nuclear mission in a number of dynamic ways including its growing conventional ground attack and close air support role where it thrived.  Key to its success was the integration of the next-generation AN/AAQ-33 Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod.  Used on a variety of U. S. and allied aircraft, this low-drag pod provides high definition mid-wave FLIR, dual-mode laser, visible-light HDTV, laser spot tracker, laser marker, video data link, and a digital data recorder. 

If a scale modeler wishes to build a 1:48 scale Revell B-1B in its modern configuration, they do have the excellent Eduard Sniper pod (which you can check out HERE) but you would still need the very unique pylon adaptor for the B-1B.

Bone Fragments is a new provider of aftermarket detail sets based in Australia, and their focus is the B-1 (B-One).  They provide the pylon adaptor for the B-1B Sniper pod.  This is a single piece cast resin part that replicates the B-1B’s Sniper pylon in excellent detail.  Of note – Bone Fragments released an earlier version of this set a little while back.  This is the second and definitive visitation on the B-1B Sniper pylon with all new tooling based on a new and improved master.  Compared to the first iteration of this detail set (which was still quite good!), the panel lines, panel line/ hinge details, and other features are more crisp and precise.  The bottom of the pylon part also features great looking details including some excellent looking recessed sway braces (which you can see on the real thing.  If you have reason to build your B-1B with the pylon (but with Sniper pod attached), you’ve got even more reason to use this set.  Also attached to this review are two reference photos of the 1:1 scale item.    

Sincere thanks are owed to Jarrad Bradley for the review sample.  You visit them on the web at https://bone-fragments.com and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/bonemasterer/.  You can order this set, and their seamless intake detail sets via email at bone-fragments@dodo.com.au.  Another ordering option is to contact Jarrad directly via a private message from the Bone Fragments Facebook page.
