AMS Resin | AMS-32009 200 gallon drop tanks for 1/32 Trumpeter F-100D Super Sabre
Reviewed by Randy Bumgardner
Many F-100D's carried 200 gallon drop tanks in addition to the 335 gallon drop tanks. Trumpeter doesn't give the modeler this option in their 1/32 F-100D Super Sabre. So, the modeler is on their own to source these parts if they want a load-out that includes 200 gallon drop tanks.
Harold Offield, of AMS Resin, comes to our rescue with a nice set of 200 gallon drop tanks. This set includes the tanks and a corrected set of outer pylons. All of the parts are molded in grey resin and are flash free as well as free from any pinholes or bubbles. The detail on these parts is very well done with finely recessed panel lines and rivet detail. The instruction sheet is clear and concise. It provides easy to follow directions about each modification.
All in all, this is a great detail set that opens up new possibilities for F-100D load-outs, especially for Vietnam Huns.
