AFTERMARKET REVIEW


CMK Barrcuda Mechanics -- 1:72 Scale

vol_2_image

Special Hobby’s 1:72 scale Barracudas are rather interesting kits of a generally overlooked aircraft in kit form (see our review of their Barracuda Mk. II HERE).  For those interested in adding some detail to a diorama setting to their Barracuda, CMK produces a set of ground crew figures.

This set features three Royal Navy aircraft carrier deck crewman.  Two wear long raincoats while another wears the standard coat and pants of a FAA crewman.  One of the crewmen is posed as reaching up (e.g., touching the propeller), while another is posed in a neutral posture, standing still with arms at his sides.  These two figures are single-piece castings.  The third crewman is bent over, and his right hand is a separate cast piece, holding a “something” in that hand.  On further examination, the object is cloth, and he is positioned as polishing the canopy.  Casting quality is great and is technically flawless.  The level of detail is very good and there’s a lot here for detail painters to have fun with.

Indeed, this trio of Barracuda mechanics can add an interesting touch to a diorama or just the model sitting on a base.  Of note, CMK also does another three figure set for the Barracuda –Barracuda Crew Members - Standing (#72326).  

Sincere thanks are owed to Special Hobby for the review sample.  You visit them on the web at http://www.specialhobby.info and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/specialhobby
