These accessories will dress up your Thunderbolts and Mustangs. The 108 Gallon tanks are cigar shaped while the 75 Gallon tanks are the more familiar teardrop shape.

Both sets are cast flawlessly in creamy yellow resin. The casting blocks are connected with a thin wedge and a few rein reinforcements - nothing that a few swipes with a hobby knife won't fix.

Strap and filler point details on the 109 Gallon tanks are particularly nicely done. 

These drop tanks represent a nice simple way to customise your 1/48 scale WWII US fighter aircraft.
