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 resin exhaust stacks for the Hasegawa 1/48 MC.202 Folgore kit or the recent Eduard Profipack of the same kit. This simple set consists of the left and right side exhausts complete with hollowed stacks. This set is a drop-in replacement for the kit's parts which do not have the hollowed stacks.
If you want a simple enhancement to add realism to your next Hasegawa (or Eduard) Fogore, this is the set you'll want to acquire.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
