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. 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.

GBU-12 Paveway II Set

In this release, Eduard has provided a nice set of GBU-12 Paveway II bombs cast in gray resin. This set includes four 500 pound bombs with nose kit molded in place, separately molded tail kit, separate guidance fins, and two different types of seeker heads (check your references). The GBU-12 is used with a wide range of tactical aircraft in the US Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Canadian Armed Forces, and NATO, so this set will allow you to bomb up a wide range of subjects.

This is another nice weapons set from Eduard's Brassin series and provide you some very detailed armament options.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
