videoaviation.com has released a beautiful pair of LAU-3 rocket pods for Vietnam-era 1/32 aircraft. These are the shorter 19-shot rocket pods carrying the 2.75" (70mm) folding fin aerial rockets. These were carried on a variety of Vietnam-era tactical aircraft including the A-1 Skyraider, A-4 Skyhawk, and the F-100 Super Sabre.
This set is cast in tan resin and provides two nicely detailed pods with separately cast front and rear inserts. The there are two choices for front inserts depicting two types of warheads. The set also includes decals for the pod stenciling.
After putting all of that work into your aircraft model, you want your external stores to be as eye-catching. You can find out more about this kit and their other upcoming offerings here: videoaviation.com.
My sincere thanks to videoaviation.com for this review sample!
