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 has produced a nice seamless upgrade for the Kitty Hawk Models 1/32 P-39Q/N Airacobra kit. This set provides replacement exhaust stacks which are a drop-in fit for the kit parts and provide some sharp detailing that only needs the right painting and weathering to bring those details out.
If you're looking for a simple upgrade for your 1/32 P-39 project, put this set on your list.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
