The BRU-42 triple ejector rack (TER) is a weapon suspension unit that attaches to an aircraft's main pylons to allow the carrying of three weapons instead of one on a single pylon. They have been around for a while and can carry multiple types of weapons. Many models have simplified representations of the TER in their kits. Eduard’s set comes with parts to make five separate TERs each is comprised of 2 shackles for the attachment and six sway braces and one central body. The total set is 45 resin parts, color instructions and a full set of decals containing all the markings needed.

Assembly is straightforward with a one caveat. You remove the main body from its casting plug. You remove the two top shackles. Here, you need to space them to fit on whatever pylon you are adding the TER too and then glue them in. This is easy to do. The one caveat is adding the six sway braces- they are really well cast and very, very small and there are no extras. Take your time and cut them off and glue in place carefully making sure they are aligned perfectly and at the correct angles.

Once the glue is dry, I painted the entire TER gloss white and set it aside to dry. I added the decals (there are ~10 per TER). I gloss coated it, added a wash and flat coated it.

These are wonderful additions to any kits and a great value at less than $3 each. They have way more detail than kit parts and the markings really set it apart. Highly recommended.

My thanks to all the excellent folks at Eduard for the opportunity to build and review this item.
