FirstLook

 

Eduard Brassin offers a growing range of aftermarket guided bombs, amongst the latest of which is the pair of CBU-10 Paveway I’s reviewed here.

The two bombs come attractively packaged in a blister pack with sponge cushioning. Very clear instructions are included, with colour call-outs cross-referenced to the Gunze Aqueous and Mr Color paint ranges. The instructions details the paint finish applied to this weapon and a small sheet of decals provides for the bomb markings. A PDF copy of the instructions is downloadable from Eduard’s website.

 

 

The quality of casting is excellent, with the pour sub attached to the tail of the bomb and its fins by thin wafers. There is a choice of seeker heads with and without protective cover, and each bomb has four separate forward fns to attach.

Painted and decaled, these Paveways should be an excellent addition to any suitable model, and are sure to be a vast improvement over any injected kit items. Eduard also offer a 1/48 scale pair GBU-10 Paveway I’s for just under four Euros more than their smaller scale equivalent (see Brassin 648171). 

 

 

Conclusion

 

This pair of GBU-10 Paveway I’s by Brassin is very nicely rendered. They offer a real opportunity to improve and refine the appearance of numerous subjects. I definitely recommended them.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples and images.
