Today we are taking a look at the Greenstrawberry 1:32 scale Colonial Raptor detail set. This set is made for the Moebius Models 1:32 scale Colonial Raptor. This particular aftermarket set is made to add to the armament detail of the kit.
The kit number is 04318-1/32 and this kit comes in a resealable plastic wrapper with cardboard backing. The contents of the kit are an instruction sheet and 2 PE frets. The instruction sheet is well laid out. At the top of the instructions is the key to let you know exactly what each symbol represents. The instructions go step by step as to where the pe goes and what parts are to be bent into shape. It is in a booklet format and is well laid out and easy to follow along.
The PE fret comes with multiple parts for the kit. The kit includes upgrades for the brand new missiles bay, new thrusters for missiles, a new holder for the ammunition canister, a new ammunition feed chute, alternative backside for the rocket pods, and more detail for the cannon port.
This kit contains a lot of detailed parts for your kit. The kit is definitely recommended for intermediate to advanced modelers who have worked with PE. There will be a lot of bending of parts. The ammunition chute will be a delicate part to bend into shape. If you have not worked with bending PE yet we advise you to start with a smaller kit to learn with. If you are working with PE you should also invest in a good PE banding tool to aid you in making the parts.
The kit retails for $35.00 and can be found at the following link https://greenstrawberry.cz/battlestar-galactica/colonial-raptor-armament–110.html
