Here's the latest gem from Kinetic Models, this set provides you with a variety of support vehicles and ground support equipment (GSE) for modern US flight decks. This set includes:
- Shipboard Tow Tractor
- MD-3 Navy Tractor (choice of short type or long type)
- Tow bar
- Hangar bay tractor
- Flight Deck Fire Engine
- NC-2A Mobile Electric Power Unit
- Navy Bomb/Missile Trailers

This kit is molded in gray styrene and presented on 10 parts trees and feature some very nice details. Decals are included to replicate these vehicles in detail. Painting instructions are based on Ammo paints.
If you're building a modern US Navy or USMC fighter that you want to depict aboard an aircraft carrier or amphibious assault ship, this set will provide those details that will transform your static model into a nice vignette or diorama.
My sincere thanks to Lucky Model for this review sample!
