Description USAF MHU-110 Munitions Trailer

Now at last you can move heavy munitions to your flight line ! Aircraft In Miniature have added the MHU-110 Munitions Trailer (in 1/72 scale) to their growing range of Aerospace Ground Equipment.

In use from late on in the Vietnam war (See Robert Baldos pics on this forum) and right up to the present day this is a great piece of equipment to have.

The kit itself is white metal comprising a single piece trailer along with ten wheels, three axles and a towing arm. All of the parts will need a little clean up with a file/sanding stick to remove the casting sstubs.

You will have to make your own weapon support racks but they will depend on what you are carrying. I used plastruct channel and strip as well has stock plastic card to make my supports and the MER/TER cradles.

You will also have to source your own markings - I used spare decals from a Hasegawa Weapons loading set and printed a set of Explosive HAZMAT markings (found on the internet) onto thin orange card.

The kit is only available from Hannants.
