RAF Groundcrew Assembling 3 inch Rocket Set

In this release, we have two resin RAF technicians assembling a 3" rocket. This set would make a great vignette on its own, but if you're looking for something interesting to place with one of your 1/24 Airfix RAF/Commonwealth builds, this is definitely worth considering. The set is beautifully cast in tan resin and only needs simple assembly and a nice paint job to bring them to life. While these would look at home next to the Airfix Mosquito, Typhoon, or other RAF subject, these would also look great next to the recent Hellcat Mk.II in Commonwealth service. Check this set out at the Barracuda Studios website!

My sincere thanks to Barracuda Studios for this review sample!
