AMS Resin | 32094: ACMI Pod
Reviewed by Mike Swinburne
Three cheers to Harold at AMS Resin for making an ACMI pod available in resin! Previously, Two Mikes had offered such a product before the line was indefinitely shut down. Why the cheers? Simple - ACMI pods are commonly seen on aircraft of several nations when an aircraft is being used in a training or practice role.
What you get in the standard AMS zip-lock bag and cardboard header packaging are four cleanly-cast resin parts: the long cylindrical body of the pod and three different nosecones. Aside from the pour stubs on the nosecones, the only real cleanup is a mold seam on one side of the ACMI pod body. Painting this will be a snap and decals are available on Two Bobs sheet #32-049. Note that the decal sheet is long out of print but can occasionally be found on eBay. Recommended.
