Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Anigrand Craftswork
Name: US Lifting Bodies Set: HL-10, HL20, M2F2, X-23, X-24A, X-24B
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 62 resin parts
7 clear resin parts
Comments: The resin parts are crisply molded, with engraved panel lines and very few minor airholes. There is a fairly prominent mold seam along the main fuselage parts in my sample that will need careful removal. Care must be taken to remove the small parts from their pour plugs. Delicate parts for pitot tubes and landing gear are included for all lifting bodies except for the X-23 (which was unmanned and didn't have landing gear). Cockpit tubs and wheel wells are hollowed out on all but the X-23. Clear resin parts for the canopies are still attached to their pour plugs as well. The instruction sheet consists of graphical assembly steps, a short history of each lifting body and a single view painting and decaling guide. The kit is erroneous in that it labels the M2-F3 as the M2-F2, but it shows the M2-F3 configuration with the central fin. If you want to depict the M2-F2 configuration, you'll need to plug the locating holes in the top of the fuselage.
