|Date of Review||May 2012||Manufacturer||AMS Resin|
|Subject||A-4 Enlarged Intakes||Scale||1/32|
|Pros||Corrects the shape of the intakes for the Trumpeter 1/32 late-model Scooters||Cons||Nothing noted|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$15.99|
AMS Resin is back with another nice detail correction set. This time you have a set of seamless A-4 Skyhawk intakes designed for the late-model Scooters produced by Trumpeter in 1/32 scale. This set includes a nice pair of intakes cast in gray resin and also provides the auxiliary sugar scoop intake as well. Note that the starboard intake (on the left) is slightly larger than the left - a detail few would notice but definitely captured nicely by AMS Resin.
This set is a drop-in replacement for the kit intakes (which have some other shape issues) and can also be used on the A-4E/F to update that kit to the Super Fox configuration flown by the adversary squadrons. You can purchase this set from Sprue Brothers.Definitely recommended!
My sincere thanks to AMS Resin for this review sample!
