Title B28RI Nuclear Weapon
Designed-For Kit N/A

Spectre Resins is a new range of resin accessories produced by Mark S Bilas of Wolfpack Decals fame.  This is his first release, the B28RI nuclear weapon (previously the Mk28).

The B28RI was carried by a number of USAF fighters and bombers, including the F-100, F-104, F-105, B-47, B-52 and B-66.  It was produced between 1958 and 1966 and there were around 20 different variants.

Spectre's weapon is cast in a dark grey resin which is quite unusual compared to the normal tan and is crisply moulded.  Detail is sparse, but so was the real thing!  The instructions are a single sheet, with a comprehensive history of the weapon.

This both a great start to Spectre Resins' range, and a really useful item in it's own right!

Many thanks to Mark Bilas from Spectre for the review copy.
