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.
In this release, Eduard has produced a a nice set of replacement main gear wheels with nicely molded tread pattern and wheel hub details. These are a direct replacement for the kit wheels and will work nicely with the brass landing gear struts being released for the Eduard Bf 109G kits as well. The set is rounded out by a set of paint masks to make painting these wheels much easier.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
