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 provided another detail option for their updated Bf 109G series in 1/48 scale. This set provides the engine block exhaust ports and fishtail exhaust stacks in resin plus the flame/flash guards in photo-etch. The set Eduard produced for the original Bf 109G had the fishtail exhausts individually cast so you had the 'pleasure' of assembling both sets of stacks. This time around, Eduard made the block/exhausts one part per side plus the pass-through frames all in resin and the guards in photo-etch.
This is a nice enhancement to the stock Eduard Bf 109G kit and remember that Eduard has rescaled these sets to fit the rescaled Bf 109G-6 (Late) kit.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
