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.

Kh-25ML Missile Set

In this release, Eduard has provided a nice pair of Kh-25ML (NATO designation: AS-10 Karen) missiles cast in dark gray resin. The Kh-25 (X-25 in Cyrillic) is a guided air-to-surface missile developed during the cold war and is still in service with many air arms today. Rated for MiG-21/23/27/29 as well as Su-17/20/22/24/25, the Kh-25ML is a laser-guided weapon.

This set includes two missile fuselages, two pylons, two sets of forward and rear fins, two types of seeker heads, and two rear fuselage covers. One set of decal stencils are included to provide additional details to the two missiles.

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!
