Well, this is an amazingly detailed trolley and single B-8M1 rocket pod, cast to the high standard that we have come to expect from Eduard.

Patience is the key here. As you can see by the pictures the level of detail means complicated casting blocks. Eduard has done a wonderful job with cut-outs in the casting blocks and fine resin connections so take your time cutting and you hopefully will not break the finely detailed trolley. If assembled correctly the height of the trolley is adjustable.

Use your favourite web browser to look for images as no painting guide is provided. One omission, based on using other aftermarket B-8M1 rockets, is the lack of decals, as the rocket pods come with various markings, again look online, you can paint some of the markings (red lines) yourself.

As a bonus you get a reload of four individual rockets in a crate. There will be a bit of resin removal from the rockets if you wish to display them out of their crate.


 

Conclusion

 

A nicely detail diorama piece.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples.
