||Interesting subject, plenty
of detail; cleanly molded.|
||Some parts very small and
fiddly; fitting of windows could be a problem.|
1/72 scale AS-2 Airfield Starter is available online
UM's little 1/72 scale Airfield Starter truck AS-2 could be a
real asset in a Russian airfield diorama.
With lots of very fine detail including the starter shafts and
support frames, suspension, axels and cabin interior, there isn’t
much else they could have included except perhaps the engine -
although this wouldn’t be visible. Inclusion of acetate windows is
another nice touch.

I am not so sure about the rubber tyres though. Rubber can be
hard to clean up. I think I would prefer them in plastic.
Nevertheless, UM's AS-2 Airfield Starter is a nice little kit and
a credit to this emerging Ukrainian company. They just keep getting
better with every model they produce.
Squadron for the review sample.
