First Look

True Details is one of many brand names produced and sold by Squadron Mail Order. In this release, er have a pair of Tiny Tim rockets finely cast in resin. If you're wondering why there are only two rockets in this set, read on.

Tiny Tim Rocket Set

The Tiny Tim was developed during World War 2 as a bunker-busting weapon that could also do damage to surface shipping in the Pacific. Note that a full-up round (warhead and motor) weighed over 1200 pounds, so the average single-engined fighter could only loft a pair of these beasts. The warhead alone weighed 500 pounds. This weapon was used during the Korean War as well and typical carriers included the PBJ Mitchell, F4U Corsair, F6F Hellcat, SB2C Helldiver, TBF/TBM Avenger, and AD Skyraider. If you want to arm your 1/72 aircraft with a potent weapon, here's a nice pair of 'Tiny Tims' for you.

My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
