Eduard from the Czech Republic is easily the most prolific producer of aftermarket details. Period. Their series of photo-etched detail sets have brought additional fidelity to otherwise bland subjects, and have taken even the best-produced models and kicked them up a notch or two with details that cannot be produced with injection-molded plastic.
Many AMS modelers will collect the relevant Eduard photo-etch sets for a given project, but they'll also go out and gather specific resin enhancements as well. Eduard has stepped up with a new product line to complement their photo-etched detail series - Brassin. Brassin is a play on words with Brass and Resin, and in many sets in this series, the resin details also include a set of color photo-etch as well.
In this release, Eduard designed a replacement set of exhaust stacks for the Tamiya 1/32 Mosquito FB.VI kit. These are nicely cast in gray resin, have hollow tips, and are a drop-in fit for the Tamiya kit. If you're wondering if this will work with the HK Models Mossie B.IV, it can be modified but Eduard has already released their detail sets for the HK kit already. These stacks are just waiting for a little paint and weathering to reflect the time and use of these Merlin engines.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
