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.

AIM-4G Falcon Set

In this release, Eduard has produced some beautifully detailed AIM-4G Falcon missiles. The set includes four missiles and a set of photo-etched rocket motor rings for the tail. The AIM-4 was the standard infrared intercept missile for Air Defense Command, so it armed the F-89, F-101, F-102 and F-106. The AIM-4G didn't achieve any kills (the AIM-4D achieved five in Vietnam). You can build that distinctive brief period in time where the these distinctive missiles armed one of your favorite ADC interceptors.

Eduard continues to produce a nice range of weapons at a reasonable price which will make the job of bombing up your next project much easier!

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
