Forked Lift USAF WWII
Signifer's 1:48 scale Forked Lift USAF WWII resin kit comes in a small zip lock bag and is composed of the following items:

  • 10 resin parts cast in various colors;
  • 3 metal rods of variable size;
  • Instructions.

The quality of the resin pieces is flawless and I found no air bubble on my sample. However, some work will be required to separate the parts from their pouring block and to clean them before use. Once this preparation done, assembly will be very easy and only a matter of minutes.

There are color indications on the instructions: Olive Drab for the body, Black for the tires and Pale Yellow for the Bomb Carrier.

Conclusion
Sometimes it is interesting to add figures or vehicles near an aircraft model to give a sense of scale. If you want to include your US WWII aircraft model in a diorama but don't have a lot of space left around it, you can definitely consider this reference from Signifer as an alternative.

For availability, please contact Signifer directly via their website.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AeroScale.

I'm mainly interested in WW2 aircraft and I build them in 1/48 scale.
