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.

Su-27 Cockpit Set

In this release, Eduard has produced a beautiful cockpit replacement for the Academy 1/48 Su-27 (single seat) Flanker kit. This set is a strategic combination of gray resin and photo-etched parts which provide a detailed cockpit tub with the angular side consoles portrayed with nice details, a color-printed photo-etch instrument panel, a resin K36D ejection seat with the complex pilot restraint system nicely replicated in color-printed photo-etch. The set also provides the cockpit sidewall structural details, the distinctive HUD, canopy sill and rear deck, and canopy frame in photo-etch. There is even a contemporary Russian pilot's helmet provided in resin to add that distinctive touch to your model.

If you want to add some eye-catching detail to your next 1/48 Flanker project, this set is just what you're looking for.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
