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 a nice alternative propeller set for their recent Bf 109G-6 kit. This set provides the propeller blades, prop hub, prop shaft, spinner and jig in gray resin with a brass ring that mounts to the cannon opening in the spinner. The prop hub mounts into the jig with one prop blade and this combo sets the propeller pitch at a constant angle for all three blades.
This is a nice enhancement for your Bf 109G-6 early or late releases. The separate parts will make painting and detailing much easier as well.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
