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.

A6M5c Zero Wheels Set

In this release, Eduard has produced a nice set of A6M5c Zero replacement wheels cast in 1/32 scale for the recent Hasegawa kit. Designed to be a drop-in replacement, the set includes the main wheels cast with weighting and nice details, separately cast rear hubs/brake drums, and a tailwheel unit. This set also includes a set of yellow-tape masks to make painting these wheels easy.

If you're looking for a nice improvement for your 1/32 Hasegawa Zeke, this kit is an inexpensive upgrade to consider.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
