Eduard's 1/72 scale Czech Air Force will be available online from Squadron.com
 

FirstLook



This kit follows on from Eduardís 1/48 scale series of pilots and ground crew as their first figure set in 1/72 scale. Eduardís 1/48 scale series have been excellent and this 1/72 scale kit is no different.

Six figures are provided in different poses and uniforms. Two these are aircrew.

One of the are crew figures with his flight helmet on is performing typical pilot talk mimicking a dogfight with his hands while the other bareheaded aircrew is listening intently with his helmet tucked under his arm.

The ground crew are in various poses, one is crouching in a pose that looks like he could be inspecting the undercarriage or ground support equipment. Two others are in standing poses and look as they though they are conversing or inspecting parts of the aircraft, while the last ground crewman is taking notes on a note pad.

The mouldings are crisp with very little moulding flash. There is a mix of personnel with bare heads, while others have caps in place. The moulding of the facial features for 1/72 scale is excellent.

There are 34 parts to make up the six figures.

Highly recommended for all levels of modeller skill.

Thanks to Eduard for the sample
