As you know, Eduard produces a wide range of aftermarket detail sets for aircraft, armor, and ship kits. When a new and noteworthy kit is released, Eduard will usually follow within a few months with one or more detail sets to enhance that kit. When MRC/Academy released its 1/35 MH-60S Seahawk kit, Eduard soon followed with four nice enhancement sets. These include a cockpit set, crew restraint set, interior detail set, and exterior detail set. Let's take a closer look at the exterior detail set:
In this release, Eduard has focused on the airframe of the MH-60S kit with two frets of photo-etched detail parts. This set includes mounting frames for several of the kit sensors, access doors, tie-down rings, door handles, structural reinforcements, rotor head details/plumbing, and details for the Hellfire missiles and launchers. There are also optional engine intake and exhaust covers should you want to depict the aircraft that way.
This is another nice enhancement that will be easy to install on the MRC/Academy kit and help add additional fidelity to that nice kit. Using this set with the other releases from Eduard will raise the level of detail in this kit to a higher level. I've been waiting tackle the MH-60S kit but I didn't want to start without these sets!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
