by: Pedro Matos [ PACMAN77 ]

Contents of the Blister box:

1 little sheet with building instructions, color guide and Stencil placement.

8 Resin Parts for making Two LAU-3 Rocket Launchers (2 different Rocket heads)

1 Decal Sheet with Stenciling for the Two rocket Launchers

Packaging

The Rocket Launchers are well packed in a Blister Box inside a plastic bag with the decals.

Instructions

The instructions are well printed in a small sheet of paper in black & white colors with generic paint call out and decal Stencil positioning.

The Rocket Launchers

The Rocket Launchers are broken in 4 parts, the rocket heads (2 different Types) the Rockets back, the Tube that contains the rockets and The rocket Supports. The rocket launchers have good detail with rivets and panel lines, They are very well moulded and I didnít find any air bubbles on the resin, the downsides I encountered were that some of the parts for the rocket Launcher support (part that attachs to the wing Pylon) were broken.
SUMMARY
Highs: High Level of Detail 2 Optional Rocket Heads Full Stenciling for the two rocket Launchers
Lows: Small parts Broken (Rockets Support)
Verdict: In my opinion I recommend this Rocket Launchers set, you only have to take care when gluing the Rockets together by using a Gel cyanoacrilate glue to give a little more time to correct any misalignement during the build because they donít have locating pi
