First Look

Eduard came up with an interesting concept called 'Big Ed' whichis a superset of their products in one package. Ever go looking forseveral different Eduard photo-etch sets for a project only to findthat one or two of those sets were already sold-out? Big Ed solvesthat problem. In each Big Ed set, they provide one of everythingyou need for a given subject, including photo-etch, color photo-etch,and masks.

Why buy a Big Ed set? First, you're guaranteed to get all of the details you need for a given project at one time. Second, you will get a break in price for the set. Let's look at this set in particular:

This is the US Army WWII Weapons Accessories Set which contains six standard Eduard photo-etch sets. You can read the reviews for the individual sets by clicking on the part number. This set includes:

Indivudually, the MSRP of these six sets would cost you $61.70 USD, but the MSRP of this Big Ed set is $49.95.

Definitely recommended to step up the details of your infantry weapons!

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
