First Look

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:

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!
