In Plusmodel's Aero Line is this nice set of rockets for the Beaufighter. Included are 8 resin 3-inch rockets, 8 launch rails and 2 launcher mounting plates. All are beautifully cast with no flaws.

The rockets have extremely thin tail fins and this caused me all kinds of trouble. In fact, it took three tries before I could get a rocket off the sprue without breaking at least one fin off. Those of you with more resin experience than myself should have no trouble but be warned.

Once you have them cut off they are truly great looking with very nice detail and a direct replacement for the Airfix items.

Thanks to Plusmodel and IPMS/USA for the review kit.
