First Look

Resin 2 Detail has released this beautiful set of radios for your 1/32 scale USAAF multi-engine bomber projects. This set includes the AN/ARC-5 Command Transmitters (right) and the BC-375 Liaison Transmitter/BC-348 Liaison Receiver units (left), all ready to be mounted in your bomber's radio compartment.

USAAF Aircraft Radio Set

In 1/32 scale, you'll find representations of these units in the HK Models 1/32 B-17 and 1/32 B-25 kits but they don't have the sharp detailing as Resin2Detail as created here. These are also useful for fitting out a scratch-built or 'shell' subject provided in resin or vacuform where you're wishing to render the interior details. In the B-17, these are quite visible through the overhead hatch in the radio compartment.

This set is another nicely designed detail set which can help you add that missing detail in your large-scale project. This set can be purchased directly from the manufacturer here:

My sincere thanks to Resin 2 Detail for this review sample!
