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.

Bf 109G Exhaust Stacks Set

In this release, Eduard has provided another detail option for their Bf 109G series in 1/48 scale. This set provides the engine block exhaust ports and fishtail exhaust stacks in resin plus the flame/flash guards in photo-etch. This is an easy enhancement to the kit using these resin stacks which have the slightly hollowed tips which help with painting and weathering.

This is a nice enhancement to the stock Eduard Bf 109G kit though you won't need these if you're using another BrassIn set replicating the complete engine as these fishtail stacks are included in that set.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
