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 the Sniper ATP for the Harrier GR.9 kit released in their Limited Edition box or for the Hasegawa kit. You'll recall that Eduard has already released the Sniper advanced targeting pod but this release includes the special pylon that mounts to the fuselage station in place of one of the gun pods (the Terma pod sits on the other station). With this pod, you can carry laser guided bombs as well.
If you want to add a distinctive load to your Harrier project, this set is designed just for that purpose!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
