By Michael Benolkin

Pros Easy build, nice details Cons Nothing noted
Skill Level Experienced MSRP (Euro) 16.00€

First Look is back with another new kit, this time the MJ-1A weapons loader in 1/48 scale. This kit is molded in light gray resin and presented on 37 parts. This kit represents a Vietnam War era loader complete with airman wearing standard fatigue uniform typical of the 1960/70s. Compare this to the MJ1-B kit reviewed here and see the differences in box body shape, tires, and of course the crew figure. This kit will look great bombing up your favorite Vietnam era aircraft.

If you're looking for a simple item to bring your large scale aircraft project to life, look no further. This is a really nice kit that would also make for a good first resin kit for the experienced plastic modeler.
