LAU-10/A ZUNI (672211) 1:72 Eduard The Zuni 5-inch rocket as an unguided rocket used by the US Navy, US Air Force and US Marine Corps. It is usually carried in fours in the LAU-10 rocket pod. Designed by the Hunter-Douglas Division of the Bridgeport Brass Company, the Zuni is a modular system and was designed from the outset to deploy a number of different warheads, including a proximity fuse warhead. For this reason, the rocket was selected as the basis for the original AIM-9 Sidewinder. A laser guided version has been developed for deployment by the US Marine Corps. The set comprises two LAU-10 launchers, each of which can have up to four Zuni rockets added. The aft end cap is a separate part, and two version are provided so you can choose between an armed or unarmed pod. Tiny brass parts are provided for the armed version. Decals (not shown) are also provided. The casting is flawless and smooth, with minimal cleanup required thanks to the positioning of the pouring stubs at the tail-end of the rocket pod. Colours and stencil positions are marked in a colour diagram, with Gunze Mr Color paint references as usual. Review sample courtesy of
