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.

P-40 Wheels w/Pattern Set

In this release, Eduard has produced a set of replacement landing gear wheels for the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40 Warhawk kits. This set includes two beautifully detailed main wheels with separately cast hub covers and brake assemblies, tailwheel, and photo-etched covers for those wheels.

If you want to add a distinctive look to your next 1/32 P-40 project, this set is designed just for that purpose!

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
