1/32 F-100 Super Sabre Intake Correction kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Feb 15 2017

      

These new resin seamless intake from Zactomodels corrects the shape of the front profile and includes the inner radar bulge missing from the original kit.  Also included in this set is an optional FOD cover.  The FOD cover can be fitted on the plane saving the hassle of filling the internal seams or positioned next to the plane as a diorama accessory.

Resin casting is of a very high quality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles.  There are beautifully crafted panel lines on the outside and inside of this resin nose intake and rivets on the outside.  The FOD cover is a flawless fit and flawlessly done, but I'd have a very hard time convincing myself to use it which would hide the radar bulge on the inside of this resin intake.  

The single page of instructions are well laid out and easy to follow.

This new resin set from Zactomodels will permit modelers to get this area correct on their 1/32 F-100 Super Sabre.

I would like to thank Chris at Zactomodels for providing me with this product sample.
