videoaviation.com is back with another new kit, this time the MD3 Aircraft Generator in 1/48 scale. This kit is molded in light gray resin and presented in 14 parts. This kit represents a standard flight line generator which provided 28 volts DC and 115/220 volts AC (3-phase 400 Hz) to aircraft for maintenance and preflight without having to run the aircraft's engine(s). These MD3 units were in primary use in the 1960s and 1970s, but many stayed in service beyond that point.
This is a simple resin kit which will go together rather quickly, but will provide a missing element on your scale flightline for powering up your F-84, F-86, Century Series and even the Phantom. This kit is also available in 1/72, check their website for more information.
You can find out more about this kit and their other upcoming offerings here: videoaviation.com.
My sincere thanks to videoaviation.com for this review sample!
