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 set of replacement landing gear wheels for the 1/32 Hasegawa kits. The set is cast in gray resin and includes replacement main gear wheels with beautiful tread and hub details, separately cast hub spokes that insert into the hubs, and a replacement tailwheel. Also included is a set of hub covers provided as photo-etched parts should your Thunderbolt be so configured.
If you want to add some nice details to your landing gear, this set is designed just for that purpose!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
