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.

MiG-31 Wheel Set

In this release, Eduard has produced some beautifully detailed main and nose wheels for the AMK 1/48 MiG-31 Foxhound kits. This set provides four main gear wheels, four brake assembly inserts, two nosewheels, and a nice nosewheel splash guard. This set also includes a set of yellow-tape wheel masks to make the task of painting these gems easier.

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!
