First Look

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.

Do 335 Muzzle Brake Set

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.

Here is an interesting option for your HK Models 1/32 Do 335B-2 Zerstorer kit. These are muzzle brakes for the Mk.103 30mm cannons in the wings. The muzzle brakes provided in the kit are a different design which were used on the lone example that survived the war. I haven't seen photos of these used on aircraft installations of the Mk.103 but they were used on ground-based anti-aircraft versions of that gun. This detail set provides a distinctive alternative muzzle brake that might have appeared on the Do 335B-2 had it entered service in any quantity (above one).

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
