Date of Review March 2017 Manufacturer
Subject BLU-27 Finned Scale 1/32
Kit Number 164632 Primary Media Resin
Pros Beautiful details Cons Nothing noted
Skill Level Experienced MSRP (Euro) 9.00€

First Look has released a beautiful set of BLU-27 napalm bombs in 1/32 scale. The BLU-27, like other firebomb (napalm) weapons, came in finned and unfinned cannisters. The fins were typically used for those aircraft that required additional weapons stability at separation.

BLU-27 Finned

This set is cast in tan resin and provides two bombs, two nose caps, two tail sections, two sets of tail fins (photo-etch), and a set of weapons stencils. After putting all of that work into your aircraft model, you want your external stores to be as eye-catching. You can find out more about this kit and their other upcoming offerings here:

My sincere thanks to for this review sample!
