FirstLook

 

RPK-10 tanks enable a single stores pylon to be put to twin use by providing an external fuel tank which in turn can carry up to four bombs. I understand that the RPK is compatible with the Dassault Mirage IIIO, Mirage 5F, Mirage 50 and EANER Panthera.

The pair of RPK tanks and eight bombs comes packaged in an end-opening box with the resin parts enclosed in a zip-lock plastic bag. Also included are instructions that consist of a small rectangle of paper with a drawing of a tank, bomb, and bomb sway-braces, plus basic advice on colours for painting.

 

 

The two tanks eight bombs have an easily removed pour stub on the tails, whilst the small sway-braces are attached to a rail-type pour block. The resin parts appear to be very well cast, although many will require a quick clean up to remove some very light mould-flash. I believe more than one type of bomb could be mounted on the tank, and whilst I do not know what kind is included with this set, I would guess they are probably French.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

This is an interesting underwing store for the RAAF’s Mirage IIIO or variants and derivatives of the Mirage V.  This is a simple good quality set that I am happy to recommend it.

Thanks to PJ Production for the samples and images.
