This resin set includes:

  • four B-8M1 Rocket launchers 

  • 8 weapons pylons (2 different types)

  • 36 resin parts

  • 4 photo etch parts (1 photo etch fret)

There are 2 pages of instructions in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  

You may be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

These rocket launchers were commonly used on modern Russian aircraft and these would be a wonderful addition to your model.

You can buy this pre-painted photo etch detail set and thousands of other items directly from the Sprue Brothers Models site They are famous for their prompt service.
