NEW from WEM: 1/72 Scale Modern RAF 1,000 lb Bombs

Recommended Posts

We've finally begun our own in-house casting! First into production are our 1/72 RAF 1,000-Pound GP Bombs:

Pro7205_zps27ee2b30.jpg

These will be offered in packs of 2 as Pro 7205, priced at £2.99 including VAT, and in packs of 7 as Pro 7206, priced at £8.35. Pro 7206 is intended for use with the 1/72 scale Vulcan; each pack will fill one internal bomb rack on the Airfix 1/72 Vulcan kit. Each Vulcan has 3 racks, so a full bomb load consists of three packs of Pro 7206. Both items are now shipping, so place your order and get those aircraft armed!

I'm curious if these bombs can be used with other British aircraft? (Pardon my ignorance.)

Should be good with any British aircraft that carry the 1,000-pounders, but I'll certainly defer to those with more RAF/FAA knowledge!

The tail doesn't look right to me,the's no cut out in the center for the impelor.They're also slick,non retarded tail units,also the nose does't have the Mk-960 MFBF so they'd be all but useless on Tornado,Harrier or Jag after 1991,when the fuse came into service,unless you modify the nose shape.The 960 is fitted in a fairing that covers the nose forward of the yellow HE marker ring.
