Eduard came up with an interesting concept called 'Big Ed' which is a superset of their products in one package. Ever go looking for several different Eduard photo-etch sets for a project only to find that one or two of those sets were already sold-out? Big Ed solves that problem. In each Big Ed set, they provide one of everything you need for a given subject, including photo-etch, color photo-etch, and masks.
Why buy a Big Ed set? First, you're guaranteed to get all of the details you need for a given project at one time. Second, you will get a break in price for the set. Let's look at this set in particular:
This is the German WWII Tactical Signs Mask Set Set which contains five sets of photo-etched paint templates for divisional and tactical symbols as well as two sets of vinyl masks for early and late-styled German crosses. This set includes:
- XT001 German Crosses 1 Early
- XT002 German Crosses 2 Late
- XT029 Divisional Insignia 1940-45
- XT030 Tactical Symbols 1935-42
- XT031 Tactical Symbols 1942-45
- XT032 Divisional Insignia Waffen SS 1940-45
- XT033 Divisional Insignia Sturmgeschutz 1940-45
Indivudually, the MSRP of these seven sets would cost you $84.65 USD, but the MSRP of this Big Ed set is $66.95.
Definitely recommended to step up the details of your German WWII combat vehicles!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
