First Look

Mirror Models Ltd. is a relatively new model company based in Ireland and like most other model companies these days, has their kits produced in China. This release is a simple but interesting kit, this represents the Kellogg air compressor used by the US Army circa World War 2. The kit consists of 21 parts and as you can see in the image below, there are two complete kits in the box..

USA Air Compressor

As you can see in the box art, this is an air compressor used in the field with pressure tank, compressor, and small single-piston gas engine to drive the compressor. This is just the type of gear you want for your field maintenance vignette or mounted in the back of a truck for roadside support. All you need to add is an air hose.

My sincere thanks to Stevens International for this review sample!
