by: Richard Tonge [ TINBANGER ]

Contents
The model arrived in a 5" X 3" X 1 3/4" top opening Cardboard box.
The box has a colour label on the top cover which may help with paint colour selection.
Inside this we find the decals in a 4" X 2 1/2" bag.
The cart frames are wrapped in foam and bubble wrap, care is needed when un-wrapping(I broke off the handel!).
The 22 are in a small plstic bag, parts are cast in a cream coloured resin on 11 blocks.
All parts are free of any air bubbles.
16" of 1/16 dia black rubber tube for the cart hose and a 7"piece for the hand held extinguishers.

Instructions
One black and white sheet 11 1/2" X 8 1/4" single side.
On this sheet we find the parts listed and 5 sections of drawing used in the assembly of the frame and hose rack.
The last section covers the decal placement and paint colour recommendations although no FS numbers are given.
Crewman Uniform colours are noted.

Decals
The decal sheet has 12 extinguisher labels, most can be read.

Conclusion
Another nice release from VideoAviation.
The Crewman has ear protection moulded on his head which is great on the runway but he would not be out on a USN flight deck with out a Helmet.
