First Look

Voyager Space Probe

I purchased the Eduard PE set to enhance the Hasegawa Voyager kit in 1/48.  It contains the usual high-quality Eduard product with well over 50 individual parts and instructions on where to use them in conjunction with, or in place of, the Hasegawa parts.  Parts fit is good and those with some experience with aftermarket PE should have no trouble. 

Some of the small parts offer marginal improvement to the styrene parts except scale and their use is somewhat optional.  The PE instrument boom and long magnetometer mast are a definite improvement to the kit parts.
