Cutting Edge set 48117 provides the modeller with enough parts to construct 12 M117 750lb bombs with the late design one-piece tail cone.

Each bomb consist of the bomb casing, tail cone and a fuse . All three pieces are contained on one casting block with 12 blocks to the set.

The parts are cast in a light tan coloured resin which is a departure from Cutting Edge's normal practice. The fins are very thin yet remain straight . This feature is something that Cutting Edge are very good at and other after-market resin accessory manufacturers would do well to emulate. There is no flash on the parts and I could not find any pin holes.

The parts are packed in a zip-loc bag which is then placed into a re-sealable plastic box This sort of packaging goes a long way to protect the kit from careless handling during the shipping process.

Once painted, weathered and placed on a MER or TER these bombs will look great. The only inclusion that the modeller needs to consider is the arming wire, fiddly, yet necessary.


Thanks to Meteor Productions for the review sample.
