Eduard continues their additions to the 1/32 scale line of armament with a pair of resin Lau-10 Zuni Rocket pods. These pods carried our 5" rockets with folding fins. There are multiple warhead configurations for these rockets. This set comes with one option which look s like standard high explosive. The set comes with fourteen perfectly cast resin pieces, a small photoetch fret and a set of decals for both pods.

Prep work is pretty straightforward as casting blocks need removed from the main body, the front and back body ends and the rocket heads. Cast into the back body end are representations of the end of the rocket and its find. There are attached with super glue and fit is good. One thing to note before committing to paint is that the resin does need a good scrubbing with soap, etc. to get rid of mold release. I added the ends, washed and primed the parts with Alclad gray primer.

Paint is simple as the main body is white and the two end caps are aluminum. This was then glossed and the decals added. There is a nice selection of decals covering both sides. This was again gloss coated and a dark Flory brand wash used and wiped off to highlight the attachment points and parts. A flat coat and the body was finished. I painted the photoetched back covers red and after looking around, painted the rockets olive drab. The yellow bands are fiddly and in hind sight, I should have painted and masked. I warheads should be silver. These were flat coated and added to the back.

This is an excellent set and a great addition to the 1/32 armament resin Eduard is releasing. It is simple to build, very detailed and looks great. Highly recommended.

My thanks to the excellent people at Eduard for the opportunity to review these.
