videoaviation.com is back with another new kit, this time the MHU-191/M munitions loader in 1/32 scale. This kit has two weapons handler figures cast in tan resin, the bomb cart also cast in tan resin, and two complete GBU-38 (500 lb) JDAMs cast in gray resin. A set of decals are provided for the cart and weapons markings.
Out of the box, you have a really nice stand-alone vignette with this kit, but you can also use this set to add some life to your favorite modern Navy fighter such as the Academy 1/32 F/A-18C or Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18E/F kit by depicting the aircraft in the process of 'bombing up'. While only two weapons are included in this set, the cart can carry up to three bombs with a maximum weight of 5,000 pounds. You can add another GBU-38, replace them all with three Mk.82 Snakeyes, Mk.83 slicks, or a pair of Mk.84s (or their guided JDAM-kit doubles).
You can find out more about this kit and their other upcoming offerings here: videoaviation.com.
My sincere thanks to videoaviation.com for this review sample!
