F i r s t L o o k

 

True Details has now added to two RAF WWII parachute packs to their growing 1/32 scale parachute range.

 

 

Two sets are offered. They both represent a"sit-on" Type S Mk.2 Irvin parachute with straps and the quick release box.

Set #1, TD32514, shows the parachute with the pack facing up, while Set #2, TD32515, is cast with the seat lying on its back with the pack tilted up and the harness straps shown to good effect.

 

Both these sets will be really useful and interesting additions to a pilot figure, an aircraft (resting on the wing or beside the fuselage) or a diorama.

I found the easiest way to prepare the parachute was to trim off the surrounding resin with a hobby knife then sand the back of the parachute against a course sanding stick to thin the casting puddle.

No assembly is required as each parachute is cast as a single part. Just clean up the surrounding resin waste, prime and paint and you're done!

These are simple but well detailed and original accessories.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Squadron for the review sample.
