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.
In this release, Eduard has provided another detail option for their updated Bf 109G series in 1/48 scale. This set provides the main wheels and tires cast as one piece and rendered with nice detailing. The weighted portion of the tires are placed at the mold stub. These parts are a drop-in fit for the recent Eduard 1/48 Bf 109G-6 or even more recent Bf 109G-5 kits.
This is a nice enhancement to the stock Eduard Bf 109G kit and remember that Eduard has rescaled these sets to fit the rescaled Bf 109G-6 (Late) kit.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
