Product Picture

The Typhoon was an impressive air to ground fighter. It was made even more formidable with the underwing rockets that it carried. Brassin has taken notice of the this piece of armament and given it the Brassin treatment.

Eight resin missiles are provided in dark grey resin. The pour blocks on the rockets is quite small and will easily be removed. The rockets themselves are perfectly straight and have no mold lines to remove so you know they are perfectly rounded with no work.

What will require the most work will be the photo etch which is supplied on a fret of nickel plated photo etch. The hardest part of the whole upgrade will be folding the mounts which are in photo etch for realistic look. There are two mounts per rocket so that is a lot of photo etching. The electrical connectors and the flutes are easy enough to add.

After that it is just a matter of adding them to the aircraft.

Because of the folding of the mounts this set is only for the experienced modeler. I guess you can say that for most aftermarket parts such as this. The straight rockets with no mold lines are simply the most realistic version I’ve seen of these rockets and the easiest to make. The realistic photo etch mounts will be a challenge but they are also necessary for any realistic looking rocket.

Highly recommended for experienced modelers
