FirstLook


Eduard continues its prolific release schedule with a number of recent releases in all scales from 1/144 to 1/24.

We have a selection of October's 1/72 scale releases here for examination. All the detail sets are supplied in colour pre-painted or unpainted photo-etched metal.

Another recent innovation by the ingenious Eduard company is that the colour frets in all these releases are now self-adhesive. This will eliminate the risk of obscuring detail on tiny parts by smearing them with glue. The self-adhesive parts will require careful handling to maintain the effectiveness of the glue, and precise placement too.

The self-adhesive parts are packed on a protective backing sheet.

73 286 - He 219 Uhu (Self Adhesive Colour)

 

 

Colour detail parts are included in this two-fret detail set covering the interior and exterior of Dragon's recently re-released 1/72 scale He 219 Uhu kit.

The colour parts are focused on the cockpit, with instrument panels, side consoles, radios, switches and harnesses delicately printed on self-adhesive photo etch.

The second fret contains parts for the wheel wells and exterior.

Eduard's photo-etched set Interior set for Hasegawa's recent 1/72 scale Ju 88 C kit comprises two frets that will add a wealth of detail to the cockpit. One fret for the interior is in full colour, including the instrument panel, side console, radio faces, switch panel and other smaller details. This sheet is self adhesive. Colour harness straps for all crew members are included in this set.

The single fret exterior set provides replacements for some of the overscale kit items including the radar, aileron actuators and more.

73 307 - B-26F/G Marauder for Hasegawa (Self Adhesive Colour)

The cockpit and fuselage interior of Hasegawa's new 1/72 scale Marauder is treated to Eduard's detail fest with this new photo etched fret comprising two sheets. The colour photo etched fret includes a beautifully detailed instrument panel, throttle quadrant and all harnesses. All colour parts are self adhesive so, with careful handling, no adhesive will be required.

The second and larger fret supplies details for the main fuselage interior, plus ammunition for the .50 cal guns.
