AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Steel Beach Accessories #48160
F-18C/D ECM Blisters for Kinetic Kits -- 1:48 Scale

 

There’s very little doubt that the 1:48 scale Kinetic F/A-18 Hornet is an overall excellent plastic model kit.  Yet, it’s not perfect.  Kinetic did forget to include four of the externally mounted ECM (electronic countermeasures) blisters on the nose and spine. Whoops!

Steel Beach provides a quick, easy, and simple solution to this problem with their EMC blister set for the so-called Legacy Hornet.  Nicely cast in resin and easily removed from their casting film, they include each blister and its mounting plate.

Highly recommended to make your Kinetic Hornet yet more accurate.

Many thanks to Darren Roberts of Steel Beach Accessories for the review sample. You can find them on the web at http://www.steel-beach.com/ while this set, along with the rest of the Steel Beach product line, can be purchased at http://spruebrothers.com.
