Default LAU-10 Dimensions?

I have a question for the armament experts.
Fujimi provides with its 1/72 scale Skyhawk kits a nice pair of LAU-10 Zuni pods. But do they have the right dimensions?
The ones Hasegawa provides in its 1/72 scale weapons set are quite a bit smaller.
The dimensions of the launchers without rocket warhead are:

Fujimi: L: 3.575mm, D: 6.5mm
Hasegawa: L: 3.25mm, D: 5.25mm

Which one provides the more correct ones? Or are there different tube sizes?

Thank you!
Michael

The Fujimi are "more correct."

Hasegawa's are so undersized that I use them for Flare Dispensers.

Someone else will post dimensions, I am sure,,,,,,but, in the meantime, it is an "either/or" sort of deal for 1/72 pods.

Thanks,
so the Hasegwawa ones are actually more correct.
Accoring to the drawings diameter 14 inches which equals 49.4 mm and lenght 94.52 inches, equaling 33,3 mm. I was ondering how the two of the Fujimi ones could fit on a TER, that looked awefully loaded to me.

Cheers
